SBCA Webinar: Coaching a Career Culture in Your Plant (Truss Life - Part 2)

SBCA Webinar: Coaching a Career Culture in Your Plant (Truss Life - Part 2)

Date: Tue, Jun 12 2018 1:00pm to 2:00pm (CDT)

Building an effective and efficient production team goes well beyond finding the right people. If you’re taking the time to assess new hires to start a career path in the truss industry, you must also take the time to properly motivate those employees by implementing and maintaining free flowing engagement throughout your company’s structure, top-down and bottom-up. This webinar will take a closer look at how applying an understanding of human needs to employee engagement can transform your company’s culture. WATCH NOW

Speaker: 
Luis Arrarte
is the HR Director at A-1 Roof Trusses in Fort Pierce, Florida. With more than a decade of successful staffing experience, Luis has been instrumental in managing 30 percent year-over-year growth at A-1 since he joined the components industry almost four years ago. He speaks passionately about how understanding human needs can transform a company’s hiring and retention outcomes and build a healthy culture of engagement and growth. 

Established in 1977, part of A-1’s mission is to “champion an environment of teamwork.” As they celebrate 41 years in business, the “Truss Life” theme was launched at the beginning of this year as a way of introducing A-1 employees to the thinking behind this new initiative for fostering increased engagement and healthy dialogue in their operations.

SBCA Webinar: How Lumber Impacts Risks and Liabilities of Component Manufacturers

SBCA Webinar: How Lumber Impacts Risks and Liabilities of Component Manufacturers

Date: Tue, Jun 26 2018 1:00pm to 2:00pm (CDT)

As component manufacturers, we buy, design, manufacture, sell and warrant lumber in the form of a wood truss.  That is what we do!  But do we closely consider the risks and liabilities that lumber presents to the component manufacturer?  Are there ways to manage these risks?  This session will examine the risks and corresponding best practices component manufacturers can follow when buying lumber, designing with lumber, manufacturing with lumber, and selling and warranting a lumber value added product. REGISTER
