Description: 

During the past few years, a focus on the need to invest in the development of our people has been diverted. As contractors hire more people to support new work, we must recognize that some of our talented veterans left the industry and are not coming back. As we hire newer people with less experience, there is a significant need to train them, especially as Baby Boomers continue to retire at increasing rates.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Examine training trends, challenges, concerns and innovations and their impact on the construction industry in the past year
2. Identify the successful training and development strategies required to maximize performance and develop a culture of accountability
3. Utilize these techniques and strategies to advance talent development practices within your company
4. Observe what practices leading construction firms from across the country have adapted into their strategic plan
