Commissioning Agents operates with a relatively flat organizational structure. The company President acts as the operations manager. Reporting to the President are regional managers, major project directors, marketing leads, and the human resources/ professional development director.
Fundamentally, clients are served by one or more project teams, each with a project leader. At larger, established clients, we have a client manager who coordinates resource sharing between the project teams, conducts business development, and develops our people at that site. Our employees are located across the country, working at client sites or out of their home offices.
We grow only as fast as we can hire top quality people, and properly train and assimilate them into our project teams. Some of our competition will provide an experience project manager and one or two current employees, then hire the remainder of the team. We believe this strategy does not serve a client's best interest, even when it results in a team of mostly local people. In our line of work, we believe it is critical to have a well-oiled, efficient team of people, most of whom are familiar with each other and with the work requirements. Hence, we provide 70 - 90% of any project team from our current staff.
