2021 Conference Sessions

Survival Tactics and Resilience Strategies for Construction Financial Professionals (CFPs) in the Aftermath of Workplace Crises

Jul 20, 2021 1:30pm ‐ Jul 20, 2021 2:30pm


This session will also be available for On Demand CPE credit in the fall.

Construction Financial Professionals (CFPs) wear many hats with many difference responsibilities in their companies. Making crisis management a “team sport” is important. In the midst of Critical Incident Responses to major or catastrophic workplace incidents, CFPs frequently are helping coordinate “emergency responses” with Operations, Safety and Human Resources. CFPs are frequently the glue that keeps the team together as coordinators, coaches, and caregivers to their colleague caregivers. This takes a physical and emotional toll on CFPs.

Organizations and the people within them demonstrate widely disparate outcomes in the aftermath of tragedies. Some are permanently impaired and remain victims of the hardship while others operationalize resilience skills and practices that lead to successful bouncing back or even bouncing forward. This presentation will outline the survival tactics and the growth strategies that define those that do it well.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how the body and mind respond in a crisis situation
  • Differentiate between psychological safety and psychological first aid
  • Explain how an Employee Assistance Program can assist during and after a crisis
  • Identify the signs and the effects of grief
  • Implement strategies to build readiness and resilience for “the next time"


  • Cal Beyer, CWP, SCTPP, Vice President of Workforce Risk and Worker Wellbeing, CSDZ Company
