Effect of Foremen on Construction Apprentice

Construction apprentices in a Midwestern city were surveyed to find out their perceptions on their foremen. Based on the analysis of our data, seven foreman factor scales were identified. These scales are: Performance Improvement, Work Facilitation, Achievement Orientation, Support, Work Participation, Bias, and Recognition. These dimensions have varying relationships with motivation and performance of the construction apprentice. These dimensions provide important issues that need to be addressed in developing foremen training programs and in particular how they affect apprentice. Further research may encompass various segments of the construction industry to analyze motivation of craft workers.
