The managers will learn the principles of army leadership at the world-famous academy and discover how they can be adapted to the world of construction during the two-day course.
Greg Ingleton, HR Director at Emcor Group (UK), said: “With cadets sent from all over the world to train at Sandhurst, such is the reputation of its leadership training that there is no better place for Emcor’s First Line Managers to hone their leadership skills.
“Following the two-day module, we believe our delegates will have learnt valuable leadership lessons and will be able to put their knowledge straight into practice as stand-out employees in the business.
“In total, 120 of Emcor’s first line management will attend this programme in 2012, with the intention of having all first line managers complete the programme by mid-2014.”
The First Line Manager course involves practical tasks outside the classroom within Sandhurst’s 2,600 acre training facility.
Bruce Jacobs, Building Service Supervisor of Emcor Group (UK)’s British Airways Contract, was one of the First Line Managers to take part in the initial course.
He said: “The course is challenging, but its delivery is refreshing and engaging. The prestigious location is incredibly inspiring; it will be great to be able to say I have been trained at one of the best leadership academies in the world and have benefited from the expertise of the officers there.
“By leading one of the tasks, I learnt the value of clear planning and briefing, and the importance of delegation and motivation in order to get a job done. I am looking forward to putting the additional leadership skills I have learnt into practice.”
