Guest speakers will address hot topics such as health care reform, training & development, unemployment issues, drug testing, and legislative updates as they pertain to HR in the construction industry. There will be opportunity for open discussions, the sharing of successes and working through common challenges.
The group will meet in March, May, September, November and January on a Friday morning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at various member sites around the state. For more information, contact Nancy Shambaugh, Director of HR at PC Construction at 651-1215 or email@example.com.
