Study on Engineer Longevity in India's Construction Industry

Balasubramanian Malathi

Abstract: The construction sector in India, marked by fierce competition and rapid expansion, stands as the country's second - largest economic contributor due to urbanization, infrastructure growth, and heightened expectations for improved living standards. Consequently, there's a heightened demand for skilled engineers, leading to a notable rise in engineer turnover rates. This attrition significantly impacts organizational efficiency, causing setbacks in productivity, profitability, and resource allocation. In this study, 150 engineers from diverse construction firms across India were surveyed using questionnaires. Data analysis conducted through SPSS software aimed to identify key factors contributing to engineer turnover and propose effective retention strategies. The findings highlight salary discrepancies, job dissatisfaction, abundant job opportunities elsewhere, limited growth prospects, and inadequate recognition from superiors as prominent drivers of engineer attrition.
