Volume 7 No.1 January-June 2018 pp 37-39
Construction industry faces lots of challenges with regard to problems associated with productivity. Productivity is one of the most important factors affecting the overall performance of any organization, whether large or small and the problems are usually associated with performance of labour. The performance of labour is affected by many factors and is usually linked to the performance of time, cost, and quality. While there are several input resources in a transformation process, labour productivity plays a particular role. A deeper comprehension of the factors influencing labour productivity can enable managers to more effectively allocate limited resources, provide workers with better support, or increase workers’ motivation.
