Developing a Workforce for Small Businesses: A Roundtable Discussion on the Current Labor Gap in Construction
While there is no "one size fits all" solution for small businesses, it is clear that the entire construction industry is facing an immediate but also long term need that requires a focused way to reach and train potential employees.
A host of panelists from training and employment placement organizations will present information on new and existing sources of workers for small businesses for hire, as well as resources when hiring is not an option.
Topics for discussion will include: recruitment, assessment, selection, living wage, 1099 vs. W-2, retention, and more.
Facilitator: Jim Austin, Creative Work Solutions.
Lunch will be provided compliments of ECDI. Registrants will be charged a $10 fee for lunch if they do not attend.
