ENHANCING JOB SATISFACTION THROUGH VESTIBULE TRAINING IN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRIES IN LAGOS STATE
Training of workforce for skill development, productivity enhancement, and improved quality of work is crucial to the attainment of industrial goals and objectives. Such objectives become possible when workers are regularly trained and satisfied with their job. Training is undergoing continuous change, and this change poses challenges to construction industries. Despite the laudable role of training in job performance and satisfaction, construction industries are still having different perspectives on the training of craftsmen. Therefore, this paper aimed at investigating the perception of craftsmen on enhancing job satisfaction through vestibule training in construction industries in Lagos State using an exploratory survey research type of the ex-post facto design. The sample consisted of 108 craftsmen. A validated and piloted questionnaire based on a 4-point rating scale was used for data collection in the study. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics including frequency, percentage, means, standard deviation, and ANOVA. Data analysis was facilitated using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). Findings revealed that craftsmen were satisfied with the use of vestibule training as it increases job performance and increases efficiency. It was recommended that construction industries should be given more attention to use vestibule training as a technique of showing trainees how to do a job and then allowing them to get on with the job.
