Abstract—Labor productivity plays an important role in giving success to construction industry. However Labor productivity has decreased every year because of increasing complexity in construction projects. Many researchers hypothesized suitable motivation of labor as a key contributor to maximizing labor productivity. The aim of this research paper is to evaluate management role in maintaining motivation in labor to improve their productivity. To achieve this objective survey study was carried out at different construction sites of Pakistan and data were collected using a questionnaire. Data analysis was performed by using graphical and statistical techniques. The results indicate that management is not interested in motivation of their workers. Management claims that their company policies include motivational plans and that they provide supervision, better working environment and facilities etc. for motivation. But it was not found to be true when cross check with labor response. This study gives clear picture of role of management. The research conclusion and suggested recommendation will help management in judging themselves and diverting attention of management towards motivational factors to improve labor productivity.
