Balfour staff set for performance workshops

Balfour Beatty has hired training firm Tableforce to enhance the commercial skills of thousands of workers at the troubled construction giant.

Tableforce will deliver workshops and other training to more than 2,500 outward facing employees of Balfour Beatty.

The construction firm last week announced a pre-tax loss of £150M for the six months to 26 June 2015.

Balfour chief executive Leo Quinn, who has earned a reputation as a troubleshooter, has used Tableforce at four of his previous companies.

He said: “Tableforce has been a proven partner over the years, helping my teams raise the bar on overall performance. Furthermore, Tableforce is part of our current Build to Last initiative, as both an expert and trusted advisor.”  

Tableforce co-founder and managing partner Bill Garcia said: “We are excited to be working with Balfour Beatty, a globally-recognised and respected organisation, and with Leo Quinn and his outstanding management team.

“The company’s Build to Last goals and related strategies are well defined and we are confident in our ability to further their ambitions through our highly customised solutions.”
