Labour productivity of Vietnamese economy in general and of Vietnamese construction industry in particular is low in comparison with other countries. Boosting labour productivity is becoming an urgency and is attracting much attention from both domestic and foreign researchers. This paper focuses on a series of factors affecting labour productivity on construction site in Hanoi. The research aims to evaluate and rate the extent of impact of each factor to labour productivity. By referring to the outcomes of this study, Vietnamese construction contractors will be able to come up with workable solutions which will contribute towards a better performance of construction workers. On that basis, the productivity of construction firms and national economy will be improved correspondingly.
