Building People Chief Dot-joiner Rebecca Lovelace introduces the proof of concept 'connecting people to opportunities' platform at UK Construction Week
October saw Building People reach a milestone, with the launch of the proof of concept 'connecting people to opportunities' platform at UK Construction Week. The event was over-subscribed and the feedback afterwards was incredibly positive: "just what industry needs"; "I love it that this is about enabling the small organisations and promoting what they do - keep going!"; and "the underpinning model is unique and really will bring benefit to both supply and demand"
Rebecca Lovelace introduced the platform, which is a 'powered by Building People' collaboration with the CSTT and evidences how one place can aggregate 44 pieces of content from 28 different providers. The focus for this proof of concept has been on young people and on surveying, with expansion of the platform to different audiences, trades and professions, and different activities such as mentoring, forming the prototype - coming next!
