"Employee Engagement"

Michelle Walker, CCIFP, SPHR
Vice President of Finance and Administration
Specialized Service Company

Construction companies today are dealing with the greatest workforce shortage our industry has ever faced.  The investments employers make in hiring smart, training well, and building relationships with employees will pay dividends in reduced turnover, stronger workforce to maximize project opportunities, improved safety and productivity.   This session will look at ways that companies of all sizes can integrate practices at each phase of the employment cycle to enhance employee engagement.

Help CFMA Members Affected by Hurricane FlorenceDear CFMA Member: As CFMA members have a tradition of helping each other in times of need, it’s time for us to once again come together. Torrential rains and severe flooding in the Carolinas mean CFMA members local to those areas desperately need our help. Imagine the impact we could make if each of CFMA's more than 8,200 members contributed. 100% of all contributions* will directly benefit CFMA members who call North and South Carolina home. Additionally, in the spirit of Reaching Out, Branching Out, Topping Out, CFMA’s Chairman’s Fund will also donate money to support this cause. Please share
