Thirty plumbing and HVAC subcontractor foremen, superintendents, and operations managers attended a sold out workshop, “Creating Super Foremen,” held May 8-9 at the Viega Educational Facility in Nashua, New Hampshire. The training, offered by the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors — National Association’s (PHCC) Educational Foundation, featured dozens of lessons on how foremen must serve as the first line of management.
“The career advancement element of workforce development often gets lost in the industry’s focus on finding new skilled workers,” said Roger Peugeot, chairperson, PHCC Educational Foundation. “Not only do we need many more new workers to join our industry, we need to train the ones we have to open a path for advancement. That is a key for companies to keep the talent they have worked so hard to recruit.
“This is the third year we’ve held training at the [Nashua, New Hampshire] center,” added Peugeot. “Viega’s support and the excellent staff at the facility are huge contributors to the success of this workshop and the others we’ve held here.”
The PHCC Educational Foundation is partnering with PHCC chapters around the nation to bring the Creating Super Foremen workshop to additional areas. Visit phccfoundation.org/essentials for locations and dates.
