Abstract: In this new knowledge economy, there is a need for employees to be equipped with the ‘know-how’ for future performance and wealth creation. Moreover, going in line with Mr Goh Chok Tong’s vision for Singapore’s human capital to be the world-class workforce in the 21st century and C21’s thrusts to enhance skills, professionalism and innovation in workers in the local construction industry, human resource development (HRD) is thus essential to empower the workforce in every organisation with the technicalities and competencies to ensure a quality workforce. As the amount of research on HRD in this industry has been measurably scant, this dissertation seeks to ascertain the degree of emphasis HRD envelopes upon construction-related companies and moves to observe the repercussions it plays on these companies. On the flipside, it will also examine the limitations and scope of improvement of HRD practices in the industry and serve as a preliminary postulation of the effectiveness of these practices and the degree of salience it will play upon the productivity and competitiveness of the companies in the sector.
