Using Engineering Expertise For Customer's Happiness.
FROM THE DIRECTOR'S DESK
We have been hearing about shortage of workforce in the construction industry for years, especially from the proponents of investment in skilling and training of workmen. On the other hand, there are statistics of unemployment and exploitation of workmen in the industry. These aspects paint a confusing picture.
It appears that the scales are finally tilting and the talk of shortage of workmen is turning out to be the ground reality, at least in the region around Mumbai. Many projects, from the smallest to the large ones are getting delayed for want of the required strength of workmen. This is despite the temporary slowdown caused by the steep hike in cost of construction that has forced many projects to be placed on hold by the owners.
When the tide turns and the project pipeline opens, the shortage may be even more acute. Hopefully, efforts and investment to increase productivity will find greater acceptance!
