the-program

The Systems Group strives to recruit and maintain the highest level of Craftsman for all job sites (Systems Plant Services, Inc., Systems Fab and Machine, Systems Contracting, Inc., and Systems of Louisiana, Inc.). We recognize that “Our Employees Make the Difference” and that is why we pay additional incentives to our employees for holding craft certifications recognized by NCCER (The National Center for Construction Education and Research), NCCCO (National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators), and CIA (Crane Institute of America). All certifications are recognized by The Systems Group as well as nationally.

 

Since 2006 The Systems Group has offered the incentive program as well as provided testing centers at most of our jobsites. We have built a successful program that has trained and tested numerous employees and allowed them to increase their earning potential. Now, effective September 28, 2015, The Systems Group will take the incentives to an even higher level. Employees who hire in with verified certifications, as well as existing employees who attain certifications, while working, will be paid for all applicable certifications up to the maximum noted in the program.

(see list) Example – an employee could receive $1.50 for a Welder Academic, and then another $1.50 for Pipe Fitter Academic.
  • Each of the certifications above the initial two certifications will allow the person to get a $0.50 per hour increase. An employee will be allowed to get up to (14) additional certifications above the initial two, which will give them the chance to make another $7.00 per hour.
