Retaining the workforce

you need

We’ve attracted a diverse workforce, but how do we make sure that job turns into a career for our new employee? Making sure our we have space in our company culture for traditionally underserved workers like women and people of color is of utmost importance to the job satisfaction of all of our workers. Leading by example, training our supervisors and engaging our skilled tradespeople in Culture of CARE are all positive steps toward worker retention.

CARE Leadership & Culture Training
Sept. 13, 9:00 a.m., AGC Seattle Conference Center

Our industry has a strong tradition of promoting from within, and this serves us well for many reasons, but one area we struggle with is equipping our people with the right leadership tools as we promote them. This two-hour session focuses on each individual’s attitude, communication styles and leadership skills, and how they make an impact on the culture of your organization. The target audience is anyone in a leadership capacity, from field leaders to upper management. We will arm attendees with tools to help them be successful in creating and maintaining a Culture of CARE. Register here.
