Group Chief Executive Officer Leo Quinn has called in American training and consulting firm TableForce as part the firm’s Build to Last transformation programme.
Balfour has been rocked by a string of profit warnings blamed on historic problem contracts.
Tableforce said it will be delivering “customized commercial skills workshops and other learning assets”.
The firm said: “The multi-year training initiative is expected to advance the commercial skills of more than 2,500 Balfour Beatty staff within all outward facing roles across the organization (purchasing, sales, project management, contract management) and every business unit and operating geography.”
Quinn has used Tableforce at previous companies he has run.
He said: “TableForce has been a proven partner over the years, helping my teams ‘raise the bar’ on overall performance.
“Furthermore, TableForce is part of our current Build to Last initiative, as both an expert and trusted advisor.”
Bill Garcia, TableForce co-founder and managing partner, added: “We are excited to be working with Balfour Beatty, a globally-recognized and respected organization, and with Leo Quinn and his outstanding management team.
“The company’s ‘Build to Last’ goals and related strategies are well defined and we are confident in our ability to further their ambitions through our highly customized solutions.”
