I've been in construction for almost 4 years and in HR software for more years than I care to admit.
Here's what I am super excited about ... for the first time ... the AGC Annual Conference March 7-9 in Las Vegas will feature a full education track focused on talent development and recruitment topics. It’s new for this company-leader centric event to dedicate SO MUCH education to this topic so it's up to you to take advantage of that. You can see the session descriptions at https://www.eiseverywhere.com/ehome/194634/448591/
BirdDogHR has been to this event before and we generally don't see the HR folks there — but we do see your company's President and other leaders. Directing your leadership to this education track is a great way to reinforce the important message about talent development in construction. Who knows... maybe they will come back energized about HR and talent development initiatives. Wouldn't that be awesome?!
Bryan May and Sean Lee from BirdDogHR will be there to discuss talent management trends for construction. They'd be happy to meet with any of your company's attendees to share ideas and best practices. They are also pretty fun to just hang out with. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want your leadership to meet with one of them.
And if your company's not attending ... you can always drop it into conversation that AGC National cares enough about these topics to create a whole talent track for talent development and recruitment designed for company leaders. Even that little nugget can help reinforce your own talent management strategy.
