Construction is one of the largest and most people-intensive industrial sectors. In many countries, however, construction is also one of the most highly criticized in terms of its employment practices and industrial relations. People and culture are too often seen as variables that must be manipulated in the cause of improved productivity.

This important new work provides an essential corrective to the current literature by focusing on people and culture rather than sector efficiency. It presents the latest thinking from a diversity of perspectives derived from a major ESRC seminar series and invited contributions from leading researchers. Its interdisciplinary approach draws together industry and research and is international in its relevance.

Through several multidisciplinary themes, People and Culture in Construction:

  • explores the industry's labour market and the major influences on employment patterns
  • examines how to improve the image and reality of the construction sector as an employer
  • looks at the forces shaping the industry and implications for its stability
  • considers the current composition of the workforce and the potential impacts of workforce diversification
  • analyzes the impact of government targets and policies on construction working practices and culture
  • investigates how to address the skills shortfall currently affecting the industry's performance.
