Employee Development at Miron Construction

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by miron5

Employees are the life of any company, and at Miron Construction, our employees enable us to achieve excellence. That’s why employee development is important at all levels, on a variety of topics, including safety, sustainability and personal growth.

Employees Stay Safe

In the construction industry, staying safe is an obvious priority. With changing technology, best practices and fluctuating worker knowledge levels, Miron’s “School of Construction” is an integral part of keeping our onsite working environments safe. Built on the knowledge and collective talent of experienced crew members, Miron’s School of Construction maintains certification records, projects future needs and systematically educates our employees.

Another program focused on safety, the Work Strong Program, empowers employees to be mindful of their safety and the safety of their coworkers. Every morning, Miron employees take part in stretching exercises on the jobsite and in the office, that help them mentally and physically prepare for the workday ahead. Not only do these sessions include pre-shift stretching, but also pre-task planning. Employees are educated about, and encouraged to report, unsafe acts and working conditions, resulting in a highly skilled team on a safe and secure project site.

Employees Remain in the LEED

Since one of Miron’s key corporate drivers is sustainability, keeping employees up to date on the latest Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) standards is a must. All employees are encouraged to attain LEED credentials such as Green Associates or LEED Accredited Professional (AP) certification. Since Miron is a Gold level member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), employees are eligible to take the LEED Green Associate exam and the LEED AP exam at a reduced price, which is paid for by Miron.

Miron offers in-house LEED educational sessions and continuing education opportunities and provides employees with all of the educational and exam preparation resources, subscriptions to online resources and membership dues for U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Wisconsin Green Building Alliance (WGBA). Miron also facilitates continuing education opportunities required to maintain LEED credentials.

Employees Keep Dreaming

Another way that Miron keeps its employees happy and healthy is through its Dream Project Program. Inspired by The Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly, Miron hired a Dream Coach, who has been tasked with developing a program that will help employees achieve their personal dreams and goals.

In order to help colleagues become their best selves, the Dream Coach has regular sessions with program participants to plan how they are going to meet a particular personal goal and who to partner with to do so. From creating a culinary line to overcoming a fear of flying, by accomplishing the things they’ve always wanted to do, Miron’s employees are happier, healthier and more productive!
