AGC’s National Construction Industry Workforce Summit to Take Place on Oct. 13
Registration is now open for the 2021 Construction HR and Training Professionals Conference to be held October 14-15, 2021, in St. Louis, Missouri.
AGC's “HR/TED Conference” this year 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. Sessions for this year will include topics such as, but not limited to labor and employment law updates, economic outlook, managing health care costs, virtual training, wellness & wellbeing, and engagement.
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.
In place of a regular pre-conference workshop, AGC of America is instead hosting the inaugural National Construction Industry Workforce Summit on October 13, 2021, in St. Louis. AGC of America’s inaugural National Construction Industry Workforce Summit is designed to bring leaders in construction and workforce development together to find solutions to chronic worker shortages in the industry. During this day-long summit, construction and workforce development professionals will learn about successful programs that are helping recruit, develop and retain high-quality construction professionals.
Attendees will also work together to address specific workforce challenges, like crafting a message for caregivers that construction careers are the right choice for their children and attracting more women into the industry.
*The Summit is a function separate from the HR and Training Conference and therefor requires its own registration and fee to attend. More information can be found here.
