The Board of Directors of the BC Construction Roundtable is pleased to announce that the Annual General Meeting will take place May 14, 2020 via Zoom and that the event will feature a presentation about The Builders Code with guest speakers Diane Bourrett and Rishi Sharma.
The Builders Code (www.builderscode.ca) is an industry led initiative being spearheaded by the BC Construction Association. The program’s intent is to set a standard code of conduct for workers on construction sites in BC – an “Acceptable Worksite”. It will reduce risk and ensure a safe and productive worksite culture but also help construction employers, managers and crew communicate reasonable, consistent behavior expectations helping to improve the retention and recruitment of skilled tradespeople. There are several no-cost resources available to employers and a new webinar training session that includes discussions on COVID-19 related issues/opportunities to be offered to companies and their respective teams during this extraordinary time. The BC and Federal governments have championed this project and offered initial funding support and there are municipalities that have shown interest in amalgamating the Builders Code into their policies and procedures.
This will be a co-presentation led by Diane Bourrett with support from Rishi Sharma.
Diane Bourrett has been a human resources professional, certified professional coach, and training facilitator of over 20 years. Diane brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Builders Code training program. After starting her career in BC’s forest industry with Canfor, Diane was a Supervisor in Human Resources with the City of Prince George for more than a decade.
Rishi Sharma is currently the Project Manager for the Builders Code – a construction workforce equity project being spearheaded by the BC Construction Association. Currently on a secondment from the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training, his experience includes many years working directly for BC’s Executive Council, including the Premier’s Office and most recently as Director of Corporate Services and Intergovernmental Relations, Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training.
The AGM will be hosted via Zoom. A link will be sent upon registration.
