What is it about?
With many large-scale projects in Hong Kong, the construction industry is suffering from serious labour and skill shortages. The purpose of this paper is to identify practicable strategies for resolving these problems, assess the effectiveness of these identified strategies and finally develop a conceptual labour supply model.
Why is it important?
Unlike previous studies largely relied on voluntarily based measures, most of the identified strategies are enforceable to ensure its effectiveness. In addition, based on the grounded theory approach, a conceptual model is developed for analysing labour supply issues in both local and overseas situations, thus contributing to the new knowledge in this area.
