HR Professionals Learn and Network at AGC Forum
Sixty human resource practitioners working for AGC contractors and chapters attended AGC’s fourth Human Resource Professionals Networking Forum.
The program included roundtable discussions on practical HR issues facing contractors today, such as health insurance, recruiting, talent management and succession planning, vacation and sick leave, background checks, internship and co-op programs, and human resource information systems.
Presentations on best practices in termination procedures were provided by a panel of registrants, including Cheryl Sullivan of AOI Corporation, Bob Leadbetter of Vecellio & Grogan, Mark Simoneau of R.H. White Construction, and Don Bovre of the Michigan Chapter AGC. Attorney Richard Wayne of Hinckley Allen Synder LLP also delivered a presentation on applying the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime rules in the construction industry. AGC of Massachusetts provided helpful support, including a demonstration of STP Online by Membership Director Virginia Barrelle. Wayne’s handouts are posted on the Labor & HR Topical Resources page of AGC’s Web site under “Fair Labor Standards Act (Wage and Hour Laws).”
The next forum is expected to be held next June at a West Coast location to be determined. Meanwhile, AGC members can “virtually” network throughout the year via the HR Practices e-Forum. For information, click here.
