As with any industry, changes in the workforce has created an environment where harassment in the workplace can and does happen.  The Belarde Company takes this topic seriously and held a first-ever harassment training class for both its field and office employees.   The training was conducted by subject matter expert Kathy Iverson of Archbright .  The presentation covered the different forms of harassment and how it impacts both the individual and a company as a whole.  The construction industry as a whole suffers from a workforce shortage.  This type of training is one of several tools that the Belarde Company has begun to incorporate to create a company culture that continually strives to maintain and improve a positive working environment for all its employees.
