Michael sent a message to Michael S. Burke Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AECOM Email Address that said:
Dear Mr. Burke,
I currently work for AECOM and have notice how much money is losing on a regular basis.
I have worked with a few public traded corporate companies and understand a little on how important it is to drive money to the bottom line.
With my knowledge and experience I have notice that turn over is really high starting at the lowest level, and it crazy to see how our company is throwing money out the window and not vesting it back into its team or bottom line. I see that we do not spend the time to train or develop our team. I have witnessed where employees lose faith in the company, management team and work site supervisors due to the lack of training and consistency of holding to company policies and procedures. I have also seen where supervisors and above use company policies procedures as a scare tactic to have employees do the right thing vs. managing the business to the company standards.
As an employee I would like to see managers and supervisors sent to a workshop about communication and effective management. I know that there are several types of manager courses out there and it can be challenging to select an appropriate type of course. Maybe we can create a training program where it allows all employees to learn the next level in their career path with AECOM. When new employees are in the training phase tenured employees are required to teach and train, however "trainers" can not learn the next level have a mentor or are even taught on how to train a person. I also think that when an employees is wanting to take the next level in management, training role or what have you, we teach them how to be a subservient leader or how to be that one minute manager that know how to rally up its team and drive performance, decrease turnover, create churnover, boost morale, uphold company values and standards, keep share holders happy and most importantly drive profits to the bottom line.
I know you are busy and I have a small voice in our company, however becoming a share holder I would like to see us GROW.
