If recruitment and retention remain challenges in your company, please mark your calendar to participate in four important sessions at ConcreteWorks:

• October 6 at 2 p.m./Session 1: Recruiting mixer drivers is NOT our problem – Retaining drivers is our challenge. What do we do? Industry HR experts talked to over 1,000 mixer drivers to understand what typical policies hinder retention efforts as well as those that help. They learned one size does not fit all. With 60% of producers reporting they lost business due to the driver shortage, you can't afford to miss this session.

• October 6 at 3:15 p.m./Session 2: Leadership skill building is for everyone on staff. Why and what does that look like? – Please participate in a frank roundtable discussion about launching an industrywide, forward-thinking initiative that can shape employees on all levels into great leaders.

• October 7 at 9:45 p.m./Session 3: Secrets to hiring a transition vet – Studies show it is good business to hire veterans in that they are more productive, understand job expectations and follow through and as a result have a higher retention rates. Nevertheless, it’s a real challenge to navigate a military pre-release hiring progress. Hear how to navigate the system and make it a successful strategy in your company.

• October 7 at 11 a.m./Session 4: Bringing clarity to the 2019 U.S. Department of Labor overtime regulation – Littler Mendelsohn employment law attorney Theresa Waugh will dive into the 2019 federal wage and hour/overtime law. Do you know to calculate overtime based on the recently released law? On March 7, 2019, the Department of Labor announced this rule would make more than one million people qualified for overtime. Are your employees classified corrected, including those who are salaried? This is a revised version of the law that was stopped just before it went into effect in December 2016. You cannot afford to miss Counselor Waugh’s detailed explanation of the twists and turns of the final rule.

The Workforce Development Committee invites you and your colleagues for frank discussion and content. It is NOT necessarily geared for HR executives but for all who have direct reports.
