    Comparison of Naval Construction Force Personnel and Civilian Construction Workers in the United States Utilizing the Workforce Assessment Package

    Comparison of Naval Construction Force Personnel and Civilian Construction Workers in the United States Utilizing the Workforce Assessment Package CoverPublished by Naval Postgraduate School, 2003

    The U.S. Navy and civilian construction industries both have encountered problems recruiting, training and retaining qualified craft workers over the past few years. The Construction Industry Institute’s Project Team 182 developed the Workforce Assessment Package to survey U.S. Navy construction workers and compare them with civilian construction workers. From this comparison and recent advances in both the Navy and civilian industry, several recommendations are provided for improving the construction workforce in both sectors.

    Four general recommendations have been formulated based on the results of these studies:

    • Using education as a retention tool
    • Improving training methods
    • Increasing pay
    • Encouraging multi-skilled workers
