Competition for construction talent has created a volatile atmosphere where hiring involves a significant risk of time and money. This session is a deep dive into processes and strategies to improve your hiring process and mitigate risk. We’ll talk through how the speed of your process impacts your results, examine typical process bottlenecks, and how to correct common process blunders to prevent bad hires and potential legal problems. This session includes analysis of candidate behavior, how to interpret it, and how to develop standard practices to deal with red flags that may arise from it. You'll also discover how to manage the difficult topic of compensation with candidates, and hear enlightening information on how and when to extend the offer. Don't miss the “war stories” from the trenches and how these strategies have saved time, money, and improved results for many construction companies.
