The shortage of professionals in the construction industry decreased further in February, according to the latest research from Mapei Kft., which manufactures and distributes auxiliary materials for the sector, writes hrportal.hu.

In February of this year, the company prepared its usual survey with the involvement of 713 construction professionals.

Based on the research, Mapei determined that an average of 52 days passed between the request for proposals and the start of work in February this year, a 10% decrease compared to the 58-day waiting time measured in 2023.

According to Béla Markovich, the firm's managing director, the balance of supply and demand for professionals is gradually being restored. The average waiting time of 52 days is already tolerable for professionals and customers.

The shortening waiting times and the decreasing shortage of professionals will contribute to the revival of the market, he explained.
