  HR Professionals Mingle and Learn at AGC’s HR Networking Forum
A sold-out crowd of 65 human resource managers from AGC member firms across the country attended AGC’s third Human Resource Professionals Networking Forum in Denver, CO, on June 10-11.

The conference offered AGC members a rare opportunity to share questions, experiences, and ideas with other HR professionals in the construction industry.  Participants engaged in roundtable discussions about such topics as recruiting strategies, management training, personality profiling, compliance with affirmative action requirements, drug testing, and background checks.  The program also included a presentation by Rita Bubar, corporate human resource manager of Cianbro Corporation, on her company’s impressive wellness program for encouraging employee health and cutting company costs.  In addition, Barbara McCloud, an associate with the law firm of Snell and Wilmer, gave an informative presentation about how to conduct an effective workplace investigation.

Notes from the program are not available, but AGC members can discuss HR issues throughout the year electronically via AGC’s Human Resource Practices e-Forum.  Click here for further information on the e-Forum.

The fourth Human Resource Professionals Networking Forum is scheduled for June 9-10, 2005, in Boston, MA.  Details will be published in the Human Resource & Labor News and on the Human Resource Practices e-Forum when available. [ return to top ]
