As the impact of COVID-19 continues for Australia, it’s anticipated the recovery of the Australian trades industry to pre COVID-19 levels will be 6 months or longer.

L.E.K. has partnered with hipages, an online directory and lead generation platform specific to tradies, to survey 562 trades people of varying specialisations operating across different states and regions within Australia. The findings highlight the impacts of COVID-19 varying across States and regions, their responses to the pandemic, perceptions of future outlooks over the next 6-12 months and the use of technology as a digital platform for driving business.
