Motivating your workforce

A highly motivated, healthy workforce is vitally important for the construction industry.

Workers should have a peaceful area away from their workspace, which should be provided for rest and recreation, in addition to canteen facilities.

A number of sites have provided the following to motivate the workforce:

  • Several health days were organised so that operatives could see a nurse and have free check ups;
  • Many types of rest and relaxation activities were promoted around site;
  • A mini library was set up;
  • Football games were arranged against other operatives and local schools;
  • Additional welfare facilities;
  • Soft seating areas were provided with a television;
  • WiFi access was provided, as well as a computer;
  • A café style seating arrangement was set up for the canteen;
  • An outdoor quiet area was established and a golf driving range stall complete with clubs and balls was set up.
