Construction industry impacted by geopolitical and people risks

Willis Towers Watson’s 2017 Construction Risk Index has just been published, based on an extensive risk survey of 350 senior executives across the construction industry. This global research examines the impact of five global megatrends driving future developments across the industry:

  • Geopolitical and regulatory change
  • Workforce management and talent optimization
  • Business model and strategy challenges
  • Digitalization and new technologies
  • Complex operating models in a global business landscape

The research also highlights critical risks within each megatrend and looks forward to the most significant challenges facing companies in the industry to 2027.  A clear outcome of the study is the interconnectivity of people strategies, risk and opportunity for the construction industry and the confirmation that Willis Towers Watson’s view of aligning ourselves around this idea is the future of the risk and human capital services industry.

Further information regarding this report, including more detail on each megatrend, key risk insights, a video that summarizes the research, and a list of industry specialists who can be contacted for more information can be found on the Construction Index page .You can also download the report itself.
