GBRIA Recognizes Performance for Excellence in Workforce Development
The Craft Workforce Development Awards are part of GBRIA’s initiative to help improve skills and promote best practices across the greater Baton Rouge region. The commendation acts as both a benchmarking and awards program to reward local education institutions and contractors who demonstrate excellence in recruitment, assessment, training, career path education, and employee retention efforts.
Performance was recognized with the Award of Excellence in the General Construction & Maintenance category for Division 3, which features the largest-sized contractors (ranging between 9,100,000 and 39,900,000 work hours).
"We pride ourselves on building multi-faceted workforce development programs at Performance Contractors, and the programs that we were awarded for this year are helping us stay on the cutting edge of implementation techniques in the industry," said Joel Thames, Corporate Director of Risk Management, HR, Training, & Security. "Receiving this award eight of the last nine years just reinforces our belief that innovation in workforce development is needed in our industry and is what we plan on continuing to deliver."
