Young Members Committee Research Project: Talent Retention - Is the Problem Too Big to Fix?


Consulting engineering has long been facing several problems that is affecting the industry as a whole – increasing staff turnover rate and lack of middle management in the industry as they often prefer to join the client-side organisations.

As young professionals in the industry group are looking to pursue long-term career in engineering, our Young Members Committee (YMC) undertook a market research to gauge views of over 160 practitioners from the consulting engineering industry on their views on the industry and how we could retain talents in the industry.

Our YMC held a webinar February 2022 to share the findings of their research project with senior management of the consulting industry. We are happy to see the very engaging and productive discussion that took place after the presentation.

We hope that our work enables company to better understand the needs of our young engineers and fill in the gaps to make a positive impact on our industry’s ecosystem. Join us to play a part in nurturing our industry’s future!
