From making sandwiches to operating graders: Trimble, Leica Geosystems and Topcon discuss labour shortages, ageing workforce and growing skills gap

February 8, 2022

This is the third topic of the World Highways Roundtable series of discussions. We asked three leading experts on machine control technology - from Leica Geosystems, Topcon and Trimble - to tell us how their solutions are helping the construction industry deal with labour shortages, an ageing workforce and a growing skills gap. If there aren't enough machine operators out there with knowledge and experience, how do we avoid a major crisis on site? Let's hear what our key opinion leaders had to say.
