Toward Operational Excellence with MetroPower University
To grow through skilled and educated peoplehas been part of MetroPower’s mantra since the creation of our vision statement many years ago. This objective is our first charge following our primary mission to create a safety culture that ensures ZERO accidents. Lifelong learning and skills-specific training are the primary ways to optimize our processes and fully utilize our resources to maximize productivity. This objective was our motivation to create MetroPower University.
Gathering data and identifying training gaps are key to creating a robust training plan that will maximize learning and increase employees’ skills, knowledge and experience necessary to improve competencies. Sherri Ireson was chosen to kickstart this new training program. As manager of technical education, Sherri will work closely with business leaders and stakeholders to identify key training topics and create innovative curricula for field employees and supervisors.
With input from our workforce development team, branch managers and ELT leadership, MetroPower University’s robust curriculum will be designed to help maximize worksite productivity and the full potential of our most precious resource, our people. This initiative will help our company become safer and more competitive as we continue our journey to 2030 and help fulfill our vision of growing through skilled and educated people while delivering 100% customer satisfaction.
