Make work life difficult for everyone or easy for all

This idea addresses the imbalance of responsibility in the workplace for universal ‘burdens’ such as pregnancy, parental leave and childcare.

Focus on education before 10 years old

This idea seeks to make primary school children aware of the opportunities that the construction sector offers to all.

Create a financial incentive

This idea suggests studying government mandates like the Apprenticeship levy, and industry policies such as public service projects requiring locally sourcing a percentage of workers.
