As roadways continue be in the primary list of India’s Economic development plan, Roadways in India, post-Independence, have come a long from connecting a few major cities and towns to connecting to almost every corner of the nation at present.
Roadways in India are a major infrastructural project considering the fact that almost three fourth of our population and commercial trade depends on it. It is like the vein network of human body delivering vital nutrients to every part of the body to keep it health and growing.
It is surprising to know that India being a much smaller land mass compared to US still and China has the third largest roadway network in the world which speaks volumes of India’s mind set in simplifying and improving the transport system of this nation.
However this feat of excellence within such a small span post-Independence has not been so easy for this nation with multiple hindrances lying in its way to overcome. Apart from charting out the most viable roadway plan other issues like funding, approval of project, availability of skilled workforce and labour, transportation of construction material and equipment have been jerk-stopping India’s pace to build the greatest roadways network that world can ever see.
However, with India’s wide geographical diversity and demo graphical challenges the one major issue of primary concern to officials is the supply of adequately skilled manpower and labour force to complete this long awaited glorious mission of India.
Though, roadways in the more populated, stable and plain areas have been constructed with less of a pain for availability of skilled workforce and labour, places with geographical and demographic challenges have seen a comparatively slower development owing to lack adequately skilled workforce to complete the task in time.
Constructing roadways through mountains, valleys, rivers, oceans, creeks etc requires high degrees of experience, skill and motivation and human and machinery mishaps are a painfully accepted part of this task. Owing to varied risks associated with this job it most often becomes difficult to arrange the right mix of workforce to complete such tasks and an unexpected delay is caused.
Meticulous in-house planning’s and measures have been implemented to curb this rising manpower issue but these measures have not been sufficient and has rather led to an increase in the cost and unfruitful man-hour losses.
Now the role of Manpower outsourcing firms is emerging as a key solution to the rising manpower issue as such firms effectively manage the requirement of multiple workforce along with filling the key positions which are most often a tedious activity for the HR department. The most attractive benefit of hiring an outsourcing firm is continuous supply of skilled workforce along with a manpower replacement clause that adds to assurance of labour adequacy which helps in continuation and competition of the project in time considering other factors or issues are managed with equal importance.
SGK India, an emerging leader in the field of outsourcing services has buckled up with adequate insight and management experience to match the rising manpower expectation in this sector.
With many successful project accomplishment it has a proven track-record of meeting the expectation of labour supply and other outsourcing services management. With the increasing importance and rapid development of roadways SGK India is sure to become a prominent contributor in the roadways sector of this emerging global leader.
