Due to Covid-19, the Construction industry has been affected severely by the measures put in place. There have also been labour shortage among the migrant worker population even after the reopening of lockdown.

In spite of the restart, there are still many challenges that the Construction industry will face.

What can you do to solve the labour crunch?

You can source for workers in the Marine industry and convert them over into the Construction industry.

The shortage of Marine industry workers is not as severe as the Construction industry and it is easier to convert than to source for a Construction worker.
