We have done some good things at Sundt, and we are very proud of our company’s recognition with the HCS Award of Excellence.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator that is advancing the science of strategic talent management, will present its prestigious annual HCSTM Award of Excellence to Sundt Construction, Inc. Sundt is a 117-year-old, employee-owned, billion-dollar general contracting company that provides preconstruction and construction services for public and private customers nationwide. The award, which will be presented on March 11 during HCI’s 3-day, 2008 National Human Capital Summit, recognizes an organization that has had exceptional outcomes resulting from implementing new talent management practices.
Sundt was selected as this year’s award recipient for its development and execution of a comprehensive set of talent management initiatives, including creating a cross-functional team, identifying critical talent projects and implementing enterprise-wide talent practices. The HCS Award of Excellence references HCI’s Human Capital Strategist professional education and designation program, which indicates an individual has attained the highest level of qualification in human capital and talent management. The HCS designation is available exclusively through HCI’s online Center for Human Capital Excellence, humancapitalinstitute.org.
“The Human Capital Institute is pleased to honor Sundt Construction for its commitment and consistent efforts to strengthen strategic talent management throughout its organization. This award honors organizations that demonstrate this commitment to improved human capital management in all levels of the enterprise over time,” said David Forman, HCI’s Chief Learning Officer and presenter of the award at the annual 2008 Human Capital Summit in Scottsdale, AZ. “The movement to a talent-based culture takes vision, perseverance, hard work and dedication. Through the leadership and support of Richard Condit, Chief Administrative Officer of this exceptional employee-owned company, and the diligent work of their Human Asset Management Committee, Sundt has set an example for us all.”
The award will be given during Sundt’s comprehensive presentation of the company’s Talent Transformation Process and accepted on behalf of Sundt’s Human Asset Committee by Sundt executives Richard Condit, Chief Administrative Officer, Joe McCaleb, Preconstruction Project Manager, and David Muehlbauer, Director of Learning and Performance Support.
“Sundt’s talent management project was critically important to helping us ensure a leading position in a highly competitive industry. An executed Human Capital Management System is Sundt’s most sustainable, not easily replicated competitive advantage,” said Richard Condit. “We have done some good things at Sundt, and we are very proud of our company’s recognition with the HCS Award of Excellence.”
