|Abstract: ||The construction industry in Zambia plays a pivotal role in the socio-economic
development of the country. Being a labour intensive industry, competition between
firms in construction depends on the quality of the workforce that companies employ.
This paper presents a study that is intended to identify essential factors in the
formulation and implementation of policies, training and retraining programmes
tailored to deal effectively with the industry’s labour resource requirements. The
labour resource audit should serve as a first step towards the process of planning for
future construction skill requirements. The study is capturing official details such as
head count for trend audits as well as underlying factors obtainable from further
qualitative probing to explain any quantitative trends.|
