Industry groups working to influence rules and regulations
Construction & Demolition Recycling
Jason Haus writes, "While end markets are still of utmost importance, one facet that we significantly underestimated is the regulatory and rulemaking processes that we are required to monitor and often provide counterpoints and comments to a well-intentioned rule. Significant time is required to review proposed rules, research the data and meet with local as well as federal rule makers to educate and provide evidence that the materials we are recovering are valuable and safe and provide environmental benefits."

The construction professional's checklist to begin 2014
By Nate Budde
The new year has arrived, and that means it's time for companies to make resolutions to get paid more often and write off less bad debt in 2014. To accomplish this goal, a company should take stock of its receivables, reevaluate its credit policy, analyze its average DSO and grade its collection efforts. Just like that New Year's resolution to eat better, actually getting paid on more projects is a much harder proposition than just saying you will. However, by evaluating the previous year in the correct way, the data can be used to significantly improve a company's bottom line.

Top 10 mistakes interviewers make
By Mel Kleiman
Recruiting and hiring new employees is both an art and a skill. Unfortunately, too few business owners and hiring managers have ever had any training in the proven, best-practice techniques used by employers-of-choice like Disney and Southwest Airlines. Without training, most interviewers just "wing it" — ad-libbing their way through interviews and making decisions based more on instinct and impressions rather than logic. No wonder costly employee turnover is such a constant headache. Here's a list of the most common mistakes interviewers make.
