Collaboration and Problem Solving are Key Benefits of Field Supervisors Retreat
More than 50 MetroPower field supervisors gathered in Macon for two-days of educational development, collaboration and team building at the fourth annual Field Supervisors Retreat.
The retreat continued its focus on three key areas of improvement – people, process and technology – while also encouraging comradery, peer group development and knowledge sharing among attendees.
For many, this was the first time they attended the retreat and they were anxious to learn from both the leadership team and peers.
“I came to see if my challenges were the same as others and if we could collaborate to solve them,” said Bill Zetty, who attended for the first time. “Learning from my peers is an effective use of my time and helps build a strong foundation of solutions MetroPower can use for all of our clients.”
Throughout the retreat, management offered information on best practices for the Field Supervisor’s role including communication, contract development and execution, coordination and planning, and project reporting.
“Attending the retreat is definitely time well spent,” said Maurice (Mojo) Brown, who has attended all four retreats. “It’s important to me that MetroPower not only provides this opportunity but delivers the additional support that comes from the meeting. A lot of companies don’t invest that time in their employees.”
As follow-up to the retreat, the management team committed to provide continuing education opportunities for field technicians and offer classes based on branch needs.
