Variety and complexity of construction project make it a part of the industry that is a great Gross Domestic Product generator. Resources engaged in the dynamic and expert-led projects, along with the serious responsibility and duties of every workforce member, all affected by the state-wide public budget expenditure cuts, raised the construction industry’s entry barriers.

In the past decade, some projects have been abandoned, declared unprofitable, demotivating the investors and workers, who were influenced by the negative press campaign, saw some other carriers easier and more attractive.

It seems like recruiting construction workers has never been harder, is the shortage of local workforce or a negative campaign to blame?

A negative campaign that put the construction jobs on the list of less desired professions, made a process of recruiting construction workers more challenging, then it was before. In the economic environment of recession where the educational system pushed for the transition from manufacture to the knowledge-based economy, construction workers have been labeled as failures in their pursuit of happiness.
