WebEd: Hiring and Retaining the Right People for Future Growth

October 20, 2016 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

All WebEd times are in EST

Member Price: FREE
Non Member Price: FREE

Description: 

The goal of most organizations is to have a robust workforce that supports the right people in the right positions and a set of systems and culture that keeps them excited to be there. However, the current reality for the construction industry is that there is not only an insufficient quantity of craft workers, supervisors, managers and staff for available positions, but also that the industry may not be appealing enough to attract and retain the younger Millennials or the upcoming Generation Z.

Learning Objective: 

• Explore what recruiting strategies and assessments may improve your chances of initially getting the right people to your front door
• Understand what primary elements to watch for during the recruiting process to hire quality employees
• Identify the leadership styles that motivate people and create a productive environment
• Discover the common mistakes that companies may make when addressing poor employee retention
