The DS+B team of Patrick Maloney (presenting), Kathy Kirkeby and Jerry Riegel were co-sponsors of the MNABC Breakfast and Education – “How to Entice, Retain and Motivate Employees.”

In partnership with Mid American Financial Group, the presenters outlined some out-of-the-box methods to give construction and contracting business leaders some additional strategies to retain/hire employees in this competitive construction labor market. The presentation covered a range of topics from deferred compensation for key employees, hiring ratios based on sales/operation, business succession and planning, and many others. MNABC members were also offering their own experiences and thoughts during the informal roundtable session to follow.
