JOB TRAINING

New employees receive extensive on-the-job training. Our training program is designed to grow the professional development of each team member. Our training program has three goals:

  1. Prepare and develop for professional licensure.
  2. Prepare and develop technical abilities towards the specialty area best suited for the candidate.
  3. Prepare and develop interpersonal skills, management ability, client contacts, public contact, and other "soft skills" so the candidate can realize their fullest potential.

We view training as an ongoing process throughout a person's career. The engineering profession is not static, and new business opportunities arise frequently. In the first year, a new employee will experience many different tasks in a variety of fields. Most of the work will be concentrated in the person's general field of expertise. However, it is important that a new employee sees what other team members' responsibilities, duties, and work are like.

The first year will consist of learning our systems, basic design and simple analyses, and assisting on project specific work. Before advancing into a specialty engineering discipline, the new employee must demonstrate proficiency in general Civil Engineering practice.

Annual reviews are conducted with each employee to discuss their career goals and help map out a plan to achieve those goals. We review their goals from the previous year and how much progress was made toward those goals.

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

Anderson Bogert will financially support educational expenses directly associated with work-oriented development. Reimbursement for an academic degree program is conditional upon:

  • The person must work for the company for at least one year prior to taking course work eligible for reimbursement.
  • The person must agree to work for the company for at least one year after the course work is completed.
  • The course must be successfully completed.
  • The degree program and course work must be pre-approved by a firm principal. Generally, the applicant will be responsible to show how the degree program will be of benefit to the Company.
