Shortage of Skilled Workers In Construction Industry
The construction industry is on the rise and the demand for workers is greater than ever. The major driving force behind construction industry’s boom is the growing population and increase in people living in urban areas. All this together has driven up the demand of construction workers to a great level. On the other hand, the supply of workers is insufficient to meet the needs of construction firms. This shortage of workers can decrease firms’ performance, productivity, and sustainability and upset industry’s growth despite the fact that construction industry is one of the largest and most important industries of the world.
