Lifelong Learning Starts at the Top
Central to the success of our talent development programs is full buy-in from our leadership team: senior level employees are living examples of our company-wide commitment to lifelong learning. They regularly facilitate classes and engage as formal and informal mentors. At Gilbane, all leaders understand that this comes with the territory, and our leaders learn just as much as they teach from early-career, curious, innovative employees. They love giving back and investing in our company’s future.
Building Leaders at All Levels
At Gilbane, no matter your role, we provide you opportunities to lead. Employees who seize these opportunities may receive an opportunity to join our Management Candidate Acceleration Program (MCAP), an intensive two year course that combines hands on, experiential learning with technical and leadership skill building to provide you with experiences proven to help you master key skills in a variety of roles.
Gilbane’s Leadership Development Program (GLDP) is a year-long program for future business unit and department leaders. Participants attend a multiday training retreat at Babson University, engaging in one-on-one conversations with top executives and building capabilities through courses in areas like strategic decision making and financial acumen. Participants then spend 12 months executing action-learning assignments, solving real business problems. Organizational innovations around Design Build execution and supply chain management are just a few examples of outcomes of past GLDP teams
