Persepsi Risiko Terhadap Penyediaan dan Pengelolaan Tenaga Kerja dalam International Joint Venture pada Proyek Infrastruktur
Abstract. Contractor’s risk involved with the recruitment and management of workers is a challenge in project based international joint ventures (IJV) as domestic and foreign workers with different backgrounds and diverse mind set have to collaborate in a new alliance and face a dynamic situation in a relatively short period to achieve the project’s objectives. This paper analyzes the perception of the contractors’ workers on this risk through a case study of an infrastructure project executed by an IJV in Indonesia. A questionnaire is completed by the IJV partners’ workers to collect data. The results indicate that the foreign and domestic partners in the IJV as well as its management levels face different problems of workers recruitment and management. This is mostly revealed through their different perceptions on problems related to regulations, work knowledge and experience, as well as compensation/reward. Meanwhile, it is also shown that consolidation, communication, language, and work environment are perceived as the main important factors to achieve the expected project’s performance. Perception differences among the joint venture partners and management levels have the potential to influence performance. This perception identification can be further used in decision making by an IJV to mitigate the risk involved with workers procurement and management.
