McCarthy Building Companies to Share Effective Change Management Strategies at AGC HR & Training Conference

Many HR and training professionals have had an initiative, rollout or project that did not achieve its expected amount of traction, even after spending countless hours and dollars on training and implementation. As a result, HR and training professionals must learn to take a strategic approach to change management in order to make a lasting impact on the company. This, and other topics, will be discussed at AGC’s 2014 Construction HR & Training Professionals Conference, Oct. 15-17, in Phoenix, Ariz. For more information or to register for the conference, visit

The session, “So Your Initiative Didn’t Stick: Try Change Management” will be led by McCarthy Building Company’s Director of Organizational Effectiveness, Matthew Hunt, and Director of Learning and Development, Robin Renschen. During the session, Hunt and Renschen will share their experiences with change management since working with McCarthy Building Companies, one of the nation’s oldest and largest privately-held construction companies. Specifically, the presentation will explore how McCarthy successfully implemented a more strategic approach to initiative rollout, leading to a 2014 Top 125 Best Practices Award from Training Magazine. They will discuss how integrating training within a holistic change management approach can support successful and lasting results for each initiative.

AGC’s Construction HR & Training Professionals Conference will offer unique educational and networking opportunities for HR, training, and workforce development professionals in the construction industry. Sessions for training professionals will cover the most cutting-edge techniques in training and development currently in use and envisioned for the future of the industry. The HR sessions will help HR professionals in the industry remain up to date and compliant with employment laws and best practices. Like the session on change management, some sessions will interest both HR and training professionals alike.

Back by popular demand is the Federal Construction HR Workshop, which will be held the afternoon of October 15. This pre-conference workshop is designed to help staff responsible for compliance on federal and federally assisted projects by providing practical information and best-practice advice from experts and peers experienced in the area.

For those seeking to earn professional credentials at the event, conference attendees who hold a PHR, SPHR or GPHR certification and attend the entire conference and workshop will earn 12 general recertification credits through the HR Certification Institute. In addition, three sessions have been pre-approved for Strategic Management (Business) credits towards SPHR recertification.
