Construction Business News Middle East recently visited ASU Labour Academy at Dubai Industrial City to find out how the academy is helping to improve the efficiency and productivity of the workers. Through proper training, ASU's workers are developing and harnessing their skills which have led to a reduction of mistakes and offsets in delays. According to the company, this is creating a skills gap in the way that technical professionals across the region approach project planning, execution, and supervision within the construction industry. Building on global best practices, the company is, therefore, placing additional investments into several programs for continuous learning and development.
The academy is expected to add these new features which include site productivity measurement; local market labor training; centralise third party training and database creation.
