  Plan Now to Attend the 2007 HR Professionals Forum June 7-8 in St. Louis

Is your firm having difficulties recruiting and retaining qualified, motivated employees?  Plan now to attend AGC of America’s Annual HR Professionals Forum on June 7 and 8, 2007, at the Sheraton St. Louis City Center.  Like its popular predecessors, this forum will provide construction-industry HR managers a rare opportunity to network and learn together.

The program will run all day on Thursday, June 7, and half a day on Friday, June 8, preceded by pre-conference sessions on June 6.

With a focus on recruitment and retention, roundtable sessions and presentations at this year’s forum will address such topics as:

  • employee engagement,
  • Best Places to Work award winners,
  • building compensation packages,
  • recruiting sources,
  • pre-employment testing,
  • succession planning,
  • and an employment law update.

Expert presenters on employee engagement will explain the benefit of engaged employees and provide ways that your construction firm can maximize employee performance.

In addition to these great sessions, the program will offer two exciting pre-conference sessions in the afternoon of Wednesday, June 6.  First, a tour of the St. Louis AGC-sponsored Construction Careers Center, the nation’s original construction charter school, will provide insight into recruitment through education and industry workforce development.  Following the tour, seasoned construction human resource professionals will facilitate a “ Construction HR 101” session for forum registrants who are new to construction or their profession.  Specific times for all sessions are still being finalized.

Further details and registration will be provided in the coming weeks at www.agc.org/hrpforum2007.  Attendance is open only to HR professionals (at any level) working directly for AGC contractors and chapters.  Sponsorship opportunities are available to suppliers and service providers.
