"HRCC is a distinctive conference focused on equipping HR professionals to successfully navigate the unique challenges of the fast-paced and ever-changing merit shop construction industry. While legal updates and subject matter experts are important for continuing education and adopting current best practices, the networking opportunities are vital to learn about practical application, implementation, and lessons learned. Development of peer relationships and mentor insights may prove invaluable in those situations when participants need to “phone-a-friend” for guidance in a pinch. The craft-based focus in areas of recruiting, onboarding, skills training, compensation, employee relations, and legal landscape differentiates this conference from the norms of general HR conferences.”
