Workforce Development Committee Seeks NRMCA Members for Task Groups
The NRMCA Workforce Development Committee is asking interested association members to volunteer for one of three working task groups.
1. “Strategies” will focus on the broad umbrella of industry recruitment, retention and leadership skill development. It also includes oversight of ready mixed concrete-specific training, the annual mixer driver survey and the Developing Industry Leaders program, in that they each support recruitment, retention and leadership growth.
2. “Partnerships” is the committee’s external outreach. For the first time, NRMCA will give an HR-centric, federal voice to workplace policies that impact our industry and individual businesses. That encompasses HR-related regulatory, legislative and executive advocacy. The group will also look for untapped resources in the form of third-party partnerships, i.e., systems, to tap into military and prison release programs to hire new CDL drivers.
3. “Practices” will focus on HR best practices and trends, including HR-risk management. Additionally, this group will support NRMCA’s Financial Performance Improvement Group’s work on the annual compensation survey. The task group will also provide a network for many HR professionals who reportedly feel, that when they arrive in the industry, they are quickly functioning in a trial-by-fire mode in a very tough HR compliance environment. The networking here, and for the whole committee, should build professional HR acumen.
If interested in pushing the industry forward, please e-mail Eileen Dickson at email@example.com your task group choice by July 17, if possible.
