Mentoring Program: Learning Scope From Engineering to Execution
In October 2015, B&W Energy Services announced the creation of a new Mentoring Program, which provides a structured program for training both existing and new employees. Now, nearly eight months later, we’re taking a deeper look into the Mentoring Program’s impact on our employees, and our organization as a whole.
Earlier this year, one of our young engineers had the opportunity to see his work brought to life in the field. In an effort to connect engineering design to the actualization of the plans, Collin Ta traveled to the job site to see his original engineered plan in full-scale. During this trip, Collin was able to participate in the installation of temporary equipment, execution of flushing activities and reinstatement of the permanent system. This level of training and mentoring will ensure B&W continues to cultivate and develop the most experienced engineers in the industry.
Through the Mentoring Program, we’ve been able to bring our home office team into the field to learn the scope of their project from engineering to execution. Once you see the impact of your work first-hand, it creates even greater knowledge and dedication toward future projects—each team member understands their individual impact on the project as a whole.
We strive to be the best in the industry, and we’ve seen that manifest in the success of recent years. But in order to keep moving forward, B&W continues to seek new avenues for improvement. Through the Mentoring Program, our engineers now understand that the jobs they complete are not just on paper—they’re built for critical projects across the globe. Stay tuned—next month we’ll be focusing on the developments, successes and lessons we’ve learned since the start of the Mentoring Program, and we’re excited to tell you why B&W’s team is unparalleled in the industry.
