Broomfield, Colo., February 3, 2014 – MWH Global today announced that it is the ninth best private company for leaders, according to Chief Executive Magazine. To be on the list a company must have a formal leadership process in place, demonstrate strong commitment to leadership development by the CEO and maintain a rigorous process to identify and develop leaders in both senior and middle management positions. Being considered a top source for recruitment by other companies and maintaining strong value-performance metrics are other distinguishing criteria.
Companies appearing on the list range from engineering and construction, technology and supply chain management to healthcare, accounting and security services.
According to MWH Chairman and CEO Alan Krause, the recognition demonstrates what leaders throughout the company have long understood. “We are deeply invested in building strong, yet inspiring, leaders; they are essential to our business success.”
The company devotes considerable effort to creating a rich culture that nourishes leaders across multiple generations, then supporting their career development with varying experiences, disciplines and geographies. A diverse curriculum of advanced training combined with what is known as action learning puts MWH leaders through increasingly complex leadership challenges that span company-wide initiatives.
MWH leaders gain further from this coaching culture by extending it throughout the organization and communicating it at every opportunity. “We aren’t building one dimensional leaders here,” noted Krause, “but leaders who cross multiple disciplines and acquire diverse competencies. Shaping leaders like this goes far beyond training. We work to ‘align the stars’ as we like to say by investing in the right programs for the right level of leadership. We are proof that leadership development pays off.”
