Registration Opens for 2017 Construction HR and Training Professionals Conference

May 17, 2017

Registration is now open for the 2017 Construction HR and Training Professionals Conference and pre-conference Strategic Management Workshop to be held October 11-13, 2017, in Phoenix, AZ.

AGC's “HR/TED Conference” provides two days of education and networking for HR, training, and workforce development professionals in the construction industry. Educational sessions for training professionals cover the most cutting-edge techniques in training and development currently in use and envisioned for the future in the industry. The HR sessions help HR professionals in the industry remain up to date and compliant with employment laws and best practices. Some sessions interest both HR and training professionals alike.

Attendees can expect to walk away from this year's conference with practical skills and knowledge that they can begin to implement immediately. Plus, they can take away insights from colleagues who face the same challenges they face every day. The HR sessions will help HR professionals in the industry remain up to date and compliant with employment laws and best practices.  Some sessions will interest both HR and training professionals alike. Sessions for this year include “Labor & Employment Law In Year One Of The Trump Administration”, “Economy’s Impact on Construction Work”, “Drug Testing”, and “Creating Internal Subject Matter Experts.”

Back by popular demand is the Strategic Management Workshop for HR and training professionals, which will be held the afternoon of Oct. 11. This pre-conference workshop will help participants understand their firm’s top business challenges in order to align HR and training with the company’s strategic corporate goals. 

Not to be missed this year are the Conference’s four anchor sessions.  During the opening session of the conference, innovation and creativity guru Jeff Tobe, author of Coloring Outside the Lines, will kick off the conference with his session on the “Four Pillars of Engagement.”  Derrick Duplessy, the founder of the Purpose Rockstar podcast and Executive Director of the Duplessy Foundation, will close the first day of the conference with his session on self-discovery, exploring how attendees can maximize their potential as humans. On the final day of the conference, Randy Nemchin of FMI will unveil and moderate a panel discussion on the results of their 2017 Talent Development survey of leading construction firms. And to close out the conference, Seniye Groff & Tim Sissel from Fortis Construction will discuss building an on boarding program from the ground up. This session will be informative for anyone trying to identify performance gaps and devise an organizational solution that uses process and training solutions to the table.

General and specialty contractor staff, AGC chapter staff, and other professionals involved in workforce and professional development, education, human resources and training are invited to attend. Attendees will also earn HRCI credits.
