Property developer Tim Gurner acknowledges insensitivity towards workers

Published

on

Property developer and CEO of the Gurner Group, Tim Gurner, has publicly acknowledged the insensitivity of his recent comments about workers in the construction industry.

Gurner, known for his high-profile property ventures, had previously referred to some workers as ‘arrogant’ during a televised interview, sparking controversy and criticism.

In a statement released yesterday, Gurner expressed regret over his choice of words, conceding that they were “deeply insensitive” and did not reflect his true sentiments towards the hardworking individuals in the construction sector. He extended an apology to anyone who may have been hurt or offended by his comments.

Gurner’s original remarks came during a discussion about workforce dynamics in the property development industry. He suggested that certain workers displayed a sense of entitlement, which he had found challenging to manage. These comments drew widespread backlash from trade unions, construction workers, and advocacy groups who accused Gurner of perpetuating negative stereotypes about the industry’s labour force.

The Gurner Group, under Tim Gurner’s leadership, has been involved in numerous high-profile property projects in recent years, including luxury apartments and innovative developments. However, this controversy has put a spotlight on the CEO’s public image and raised questions about his relationship with the workforce that plays a vital role in his projects’ success.

Microsoft has announced a postponement in the release of its new Recall AI feature, citing significant security concerns raised during internal testing.

Pope Francis took charge of discussions on the implications of artificial intelligence for global ethics and governance, Reuters reports.

The pope said AI represented an “epochal transformation” for mankind, but stressed the need for close oversight of the ever-developing technology to preserve human life and dignity.

“No machine should ever choose to take the life of a human being,” he said, adding that people should not let superpowerful algorithms decide their destiny.
“We would condemn humanity to a future without hope if we took away people’s ability to make decisions about themselves and their lives, by dooming them to depend on the choices of machines,” he warned.
