Registration Open for 10th Annual HR Professionals Conference

Registration is now open for AGC’s HR Professionals Conference, to be held October 4-6, 2011, at the Crowne Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri.

The HR Professionals Conference is the premier event for human resource professionals to learn and share HR practices related to the construction industry.  On day one of the conference, sessions will include an entertaining presentation on how to get rid of the “LUZIRS” - Lazy, Undisciplined, Zero-Interest, Irresponsible, Rude, Slackers – in the organization, and “Surviving a Wage & Hour Audit,” which will be presented by an established attorney experienced with such audits along with a construction HR professional who will share her own experiences of surviving a recent audit.

Experts and peers also will be on-hand to discuss compliance with the healthcare reform mandates that take effect in 2011 and 2012, as well as techniques for lowering company health care costs.  On day two, AGC’s chief economist will answer the question “Is it time to start hiring?” and attendees will be able to participate in a hands-on document review workshop to learn best practices for recognizing fraudulent identification used to complete Form I-9.  The final session of the conference will get attendees excited about heading back to work to implement their vision for their workforce as they learn to develop a corporate culture for their organization.

This conference is packed full of construction-related sessions on HR topics such as creating a mentoring program, hiring from a remote location,  successfully operating in multiple jurisdictions, keeping your organization safe from workplace violence, using pre-employment assessments, and more.   In most sessions, construction industry examples and case studies will be shared.

The HR Professionals Conference will be co-located with AGC’s Training, Education & Development Conference, which will take place October 3-4 in the same hotel. There will be one joint session on the morning of October 4 with a keynote by Jay Forte, president of Humanetrics, on how HR and training professionals drive results in the workplace.  AGC members and Chapter staff interested in these areas can take advantage of special pricing to attend both conferences.

New this year is the Federal Contracting Compliance Construction HR Workshop, which will be held the afternoon of October 5 and the morning of October 6, directly after the HR Professionals Conference. This workshop is designed to help staff responsible for employment law compliance on federal and federally assisted projects by providing practical information and best-practice advice from experts and peers experienced in the area.  Attendees can register for this workshop alone or in conjunction with the HR Professionals Conference to receive a special discount.
