If you are looking to inspire the young leaders in your organization, and want to build a program to successfully recruit and retain professionals directly from college and help them grow into some of your most influential leaders, then come learn how RBF has done this for decades.

RBF provides consulting services (engineering, planning, and construction management) and realizes that the success of their team members equates to the success of their company. They have developed a multi-faceted career development model that helps grow each employee during every stage of their career. A hugely successful program within this model is their New Graduate Program.
