Ensuring back-office efficiencies in the face of economic uncertainty
The UK’s construction and manufacturing industries are at a crossroads. Renewable energy projects, cars for export and an upturn in the global economy have helped to boost UK manufacturing, and an increase in infrastructure activity and private housebuilding are expected to drive growth in construction over the coming years.
The future looks ambiguous with uncertainty around Brexit, the weak pound, a slowing economy, falling real wages and rising costs could adversely affect these industries. According to PWC’s latest CEO survey, 88% of construction and manufacturing CEOs are concerned about uncertain or volatile economic growth.
In light of this, construction and manufacturing companies need to address underlying challenges in productivity, profitability, performance, availability of skilled labour, and sustainability in order to remain viable.
