Mid-City Launches Field Leadership Development Program

Mid-City officially launched its Field Leadership Development program on May 17, 2022.

This special program has been in the works for a year now and was created by Sarah Logar, Employee Development Manager, and other experienced leaders in the field, consisting of foremen and superintendents with years of experience and extensive industry knowledge. The program’s overall goal is to give our team the tools they need to manage both people and construction projects with confidence, and coach and lead the next generation of our industry.

“The Field Leadership Development program provides our employees the opportunity to grow and expand their knowledge and communication skills, helping them reach their full potential, which also helps us achieve company goals,” said Brian Dew, President of Mid-City Electric.

Employees will have access to learning resources such as our own MCE Academy (a comprehensive series of in-person classes focused on leadership and people management); LinkedIn Learning subscriptions, Builder’s Exchange course offerings, professional certification and licensure programs; trainings from MCE and outside subject matter experts, and mentorship.

The program will also provide informal learning opportunities for our team, including a “Foreman Forum” on June 26th, that will bring our foremen together to ask a panel of veteran field leaders questions and get career advice.

Mid-City will also be leveraging internal subject matter experts to deliver classes. The 2022 in-house course schedule includes:

  • August 4- How to Document Employee Issues with Angy Russell, Director of HR
  • September 8- Intro to Basic Voice & Data with Dan Sime, Foreman for Teledata & Electrical
  • October 5- How to Generate Reports & Maintain File Organization with Matt Phillips, Director of Technologies and Sarah Logar, Employee Development Manager
  • November 8- Introduction to NECA Labor Units with Dave Anderson, Director of Estimating
