A recent Forbes survey revealed 91% of Millennials expect to stay in a job for less than three years. Meanwhile, OSHA reports that overall workplace fatalities have dropped 20% in the last decade, but Hispanic fatalities have risen nearly 35% in the same period. On the surface, these two challenges seem unrelated; however, the underlying leadership traits (communication and cultural awareness) that can mitigate them are the same for both groups and collectively drive engagement on the job.
As the jobsite continues to become younger and more diverse, AGC member firms are challenged to adapt their efforts to consistently recruit, on-board, train, and retain a multi-generational and multi-cultural workforce.
In this engaging and interactive workshop, the audience will learn immediate and applicable leadership strategies for the two fastest growing demographics on the jobsite.
Kara Sand of PCL Construction and Bradley Hartmann of Red Angle will interweave their passion, expertise and humor as they reveal the core skills that are applicable to drive engagement with your workforce.
