Career Development

Enhance your career continuously

 
At KCB, we recognize that career development is critical to personal growth as well as growth of the company. We believe that professional development enables our employees to further their careers, improve their performance, and ensure client satisfaction.

Professionals can join KCB at any stage in their careers and find many opportunities to further their ambitions. Our learning programs range from technical discipline and project specific skills development to non-technical skills development. Some of our training initiatives include internal and external courses, online training, in-house information sessions and on-the-job work experience. KCB also provides support to those obtaining higher degrees and professional designations as well as support for volunteer involvement.

Interactions with our senior leaders are an essential component of staff development. Through KCB’s Mentoring Program, our leaders provide practical guidance and coaching that have a tremendous impact on an individual’s career at all stages.

To develop our future leaders, KCB creates additional educational programs and provides many tools and resources on topics such as:

  • Mentoring others
  • Coaching, motivating and leading high performance teams
  • Leadership development
  • Advanced presentation and facilitation skills
  • Advanced negotiation skills
  • Financial skills for non-financial managers
  • Fostering client relationships

Our employees have access to extensive resources that enable them to perform at the highest level. We house the largest corporate geotechnical library in North America, and we use our employee intranet to communicate daily news and recognition. We also have leading edge information technology systems, geographic information systems, and accounting and filing systems that keep our business processes running effectively.

Our success story comes from our own people who have helped grow the company and create its great team culture. Click on the photos to read about the real life stories of our talented people sharing their experiences, career progression, and words of advice that inspire us to achieve more.
