HR Leadership Conference
People underscore everything in the A/E/C industry, requiring HR leaders to
tackle some of the most difficult questions facing firms in the space. To foster a continued dialogue around these questions, EFCG has been hosting its annual HR Executive Conference since 2010. Each year, HR leaders come together to share their insights and learnings on HR strategies, policies and metrics as well as the impact of broader current events. All this is augmented by EFCG’s data and expertise in business and financial analysis, which leverages our extensive industry and HR-specific proprietary database.
In response to COVID-19 impacts, EFCG held its 2020 EFCG HR Conference
virtually, doing so September 15-17. A series of 12 highly interactive sessions were conducted, allowing attendees to experience the same meaningful knowledge exchange and insights found in previously. A summary is available, with each session taped, allowing access to presentations, balloting, panelists’ remarks and exchanges from CHROs and HRDs, Contact Dimitri Milionis for access. The next EFCG HR Executive Conference, in-person or virtual, will be held May 20-21, 2021.
