Why Pakistani Workers are the Best Choice for the Marine & Shipyard Industry?

Pakistani workers are the ideal kind of workers for the Marine & Shipyard Industry.  They are great at technical work and possess above average intelligence.  They are loyal, hardworking men who are quick to action and not afraid of working in high risk situations.  Given below are various reasons for why Pakistani workers are best for the Marine & Shipyard Industry.

They are Strong and Robust Hard Workers:

Hard workers are the most prized type of workers in any industry.  Working hard is a part of Pakistani culture and is thought to be normal and is a necessity given the economic conditions in Pakistan.  It is considered to be honorable to work hard and to financially support relatives and loved ones and to provide for them.  Hard workers are held in the highest regard by the people of the community.  

Coming from agricultural backgrounds, Pakistani workers are very tough and robust too.  Since Pakistan has all types of weather like extreme cold and scorching heat, from frozen mountain ranges to scorching hot deserts, its people are capable of working in any type of weather.  Furthermore, besides being strong, they are quite smart, and can fulfill complex and difficult tasks much very competently. 

Strong, robust, intelligent and hard working is an exact representation of a Pakistani worker.  All these qualities come together in each Pakistani worker to make them the best workers in the world.  And also an ideal fit for the Shipyard and Marine Industry.

They are Long Term Employees:

Workers from Pakistan prefer long term employment because they have to support and provide for their families back home.  They try and avoid changing jobs as much as possible.  Such employees tend to work harder, are peaceable and law abiding and are willing to put in extra effort to please their employers.  This makes them highly valued employees in the Marine and Shipyard Industry.

Pakistani Workers Love to Work Abroad:

Pakistani workers face many problems at home, such as low wages, high unemployment, job instability and poor healthcare, working & living conditions.  Working abroad allows them to overcome all these issues. Moreover, working abroad also offers Pakistani workers the chance to learn new skills and technologies, experience new cultures and places, and access better medical facilities.  Because of this desire to work abroad, Pakistani workers easily fit into foreign cultures and work environments and prove to be some of the best workers for their employees.

Pakistani Shipyard Workers are Experienced & Well Trained:

There are many shipyards in Pakistan but Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works (KSEW) and Gadani Ship Breaking Yard are the most well known.  These yards employ thousands of trained and seasoned workers who are considered to be among the best in the world at their trade.
