In collaboration with the Hispanic American Construction Industry Association (HACIA)

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 8:00 am

EFBC invites you to attend an interactive networking breakfast and panel discussion in collaboration with the Hispanic American Construction Industry Association (HACIA). This event is a great way to meet entrepreneurs, leaders and other members within the HACIA and EFBC communities as we dig into the big topics impacting small businesses.

The panel discussion will focus on Reigniting the Culture: How businesses are coming back to work and adapting to a new environment as the post-pandemic world is on the horizon.

  • How have leaders overcome their biggest challenges in the last year?
  • How has the company culture changed?
  • How has hiring been impacted and how do we navigate it from here on out?
  • How have your processes changed in the office, or how do you plan to return employees to the office (if at all)?
  • And more!
