Weekly commuting construction workers still occur frequently in the construction sector, especially in civil engineering where the majority of projects still are located far from established communities. Earlier it was more accepted for workers to weekly commute while the other partner (often the wife) stayed at home and took care of the children. Over time, this has gradually changed and nowadays it’s more common that both partners in a family to work full time. This has changed the acceptance for weekly commuting since the partner at home need to take the whole responsibility for children and home chores while working. People also value the social life, holidays more than before.This study aims to investigate problems to hire/maintain white collar workers in construction projects associated with weekly commuting. The study has specifically studied the NCC group working on civil engineering projects in Jämtland/Västernorrland. A total of 18 interviews divided into four interview groups were performed: Staff with a recruiting role within NCC, staff with a recruiting role in other construction companies, weekly commuting staff within NCC and staff that recently quit commuting.Consequences for the social life are confirmed both in the literature and interviews to be the foremost negative factor for weekly commuters. In addition, other factors are analysed such as financial compensation, overtime, holidays, challenging projects and four day workweeks.The study has clearly shown that recruiting problems is commonly occurring and something that employers should consider carefully to be competitive in projects requiring weekly commuting.
