Labour shortages, occupational health and safety on the construction site, quality from the point of view of the client and subcontractor: What are the issues that concern our foremen and construction managers? What do they expect from senior management? And what have they always wanted to tell them? The "Construction Conferences" in Germany bring it to light.
In large organisations, many employees rarely if ever have the opportunity to exchange ideas with senior management. At Implenia Germany, the "Construction Conferences" provide such an opportunity: 150 foremen and construction managers from the Buildings, Civil Engineering and Specialties divisions spent a day and a half each in February and March learning new things and discussing their day-to-day work and current developments - with each other and with managers.
