FundyPros is the largest specialty construction firm in New Brunswick, carrying out both residential and commercial projects. In this video, the company’s president discusses effort to empower its workforce by investing in training.
The company pays for in-house training, during work hours. The training is focused on the Essential Skills that enable all learning, not on specific construction-related skills.
The goal is to foster a learning culture and to try to change mindset of the industry. Employees are not measured on their grades but, rather, on their ability to put aside their fears and tackle new ideas and practices.
For FundyPros, the rewards have included a better safety record, improved productivity, and a workforce with greater confidence and self-esteem.
This video is one of several recorded during an Essential Skills in the Workplace learning event, funded by the Government of New Brunswick and held in Moncton in April 2012.
