Best Hiring Practices for the Construction Industry ( 2 hr )
It is often said that employees can make you, or break you. This has never been truer than it is today. Since the Great Recession, we have been trying to staff our companies in the midst of a severe labor shortage; while our experienced leaders are retiring, the next generation (Gen Y) only wants to work in IT (Information Technology). In today’s class, we are going to learn to: •Advertise right for the position •Screen the applicants to save time •Set the appropriate expectations •Train the new hire for optimal performance
Afternoon Session: 1:30 – 5:30 pm
Take-off to Higher Profits ( 4 hr )
This course will focus on the “nitty gritty” techniques for accurate and efficient quantity material and labor take-offs. Topics will cover how to create more accurate estimates in a more timely manner and some rules of thumb for various quantity take offs in residential construction.
