Half of GCC construction workers to change jobs
The proportion of respondents to the CW 2015 Salary Survey working more than 60 hours per week has more than halved since last year.

Almost half of GCC construction professionals expect to change jobs within the next 12 months, according to the results of Construction Week’s 2015 Salary Survey.

When quizzed about their plans for the future, 49 percent of survey respondents said that they intend to move on from their current role during the coming year.

Of those who plan to change jobs, 92.86 percent expect to remain within the GCC region.

The preferred destinations of the 7.14 percent of respondents who plan to relocate beyond the Gulf include Asia Pacific, Australasia, Europe, and North America.

The survey was completed by 220 construction professionals in total.

Full details of the CW 2015 Salary Survey will be published in the upcoming issue of Construction Week.
