Abstract

The study is about job satisfaction among workers in construction industry, a case of NHC. The general objective was to investigate job satisfaction among workers in the construction industry. The specific objectives were to determine level of job satisfaction among workers in the construction industry, to analyze techniques used by NHC to ensure maximum workers job satisfaction and to assess to what extent job satisfaction influences workers performance. The study comprised a sample of 55 respondents’ which was selected basing on the researcher’s judgment. Quantitative data was analyzed by the use of SPSS 16. The findings from the study revealed that workers were not paid in relation to the amount of work done and not given chances for advancement on job. Furthermore, it was revealed that they were not involved in key site decision making, and also they were ready to leave NHC if given more pay than what they are paid by NHC. Workers were also concerned with inequalities in salaries, promotions, training opportunities and untimely disbursement of project funds. It is recommended that NHC should sustain the current working condition and seek to improve and ensure equitability in compensation and promotion of its workforce. The Corporation should train construction workers in new construction technology and ensure that projects funds are disbursed as required to ensure timely execution of works.
