A Detailed Look at the Labor Shortage Impact On Projects

Craft labor shortages are a serious issue with a huge impact on project productivity. To gain a better understanding of productivity from their perspective, the Construction Labor Market Analyzer and the Construction Users Roundtable have collaborated in recent years to conduct surveys of construction owners, contractors and unions across the U.S.

Not only does this white paper examine productivity past and present, it also discusses the impact of labor risk on project outcomes; and concludes by offering owner recommendations for addressing labor risk in an imbalanced market and improving construction productivity. With such a clear correlation between productivity decline and the labor shortage, effective risk management, productivity tracking and workforce growth is vital to improving project outcomes and the construction industry overall.
