Future workforces are becoming increasingly diverse. By 2025, the millennial generation is anticipated to comprise 75% of the global workforce, and research by Randstad suggests that more women are coming to work in the construction industry, with expectations that they will make up 26% of the workforce by 2020. However, there are still issues surrounding equality, diversity and inclusion that need addressing. For example, perceptions around equal pay still persist, with 41% of women believing they earn less than men, and BAME men are 28% less likely to work in STEM than white men.
