Foundation Contractor in Central Missouri Receives Management Training

Foundation Recovery Systems, the premier foundation repair company in central Missouri, held a two-day Management Training for their company leaders and managers.  Each department manager, along with the company owners, attended the intensive two-day event which focused on maintaining company culture in times of growth and change, bringing the best talent on board, orienting new hires, managing different types of employees, and rewarding/recognizing excellent contributions from employees.

While there were many initiatives that Foundation Recovery Systems will be implementing as a result of the training, a few key areas of focus include strategies for keeping connected with employees as the company continues to experience explosive growth and making sure all new hires feel like a part of “Team FRS” as quickly as possible.  Sharon Martin, Office Manager, said, “I believe the two days were very beneficial for everyone involved – I’m already seeing comments related to what was learned coming forth as suggestions for change.  Now the key is to keep the enthusiasm going.”

Foundation Recovery Systems was founded in 1992 and operates out of Moberly, Missouri, providing commercial and residential foundation repair in Kansas City, as well as greater Missouri and portions of Iowa and Illinois.
