Event description

Description

This FORUM is focused on meeting the needs of Construction-related Employers and potential Employees as it relates to Job Readiness. The discussion is focused around the following City Ordinance:

COLUMBUS CITY CODE AMENDMENT: Councilmember Elizabeth Brown is sponsoring ordinance 1970- 2017 to amend various sections of Chapter 329 of the Columbus City Codes. The new language adds the hiring of disadvantaged workers, such as restored citizens, to the factors considered during the prequalification process for companies who bid on city contracts. This change leverages Columbus’ purchasing power to encourage companies to hire individuals in the community who otherwise struggle to find employment.

Our Panel Discussion will be comprised of Owners of construction-related businesses who will share their experiences with hiring individuals in transition, such as restored citizens. They will also discuss training or development that has or can be addressed to enhance the overall experience for both the Employer and the Individual as the Employee.

Following the Panel discussion there will be a Networking Luncheon. Then the second half of the day will be a debriefing with only those Individuals who are potential Employees.
