HOME/COMPETITIONS/COMPANY/MERC 2019

The ENGINUITY Competition forms part of the Mercury Engineering Graduate Development Programme.

It enables the graduates to consolidate their learning and experience acquired to date, and apply business acumen in a competitive simulation exercise designed to challenge leadership and management skills, by putting them in the 'hot seat' running their own global construction contracting business.

8 teams are taking part in the Competition, and are competing for 8 rounds against computer-simulated companies, and then a further 4 rounds 'head to head' against each other from October 2019 until February 2020.

PERIOD 8:  "'Four + One' produce a 5 star performance"

Disgruntled shareholders at "Four + One" have cause for hope as the beleagured management team responded to recent criticism to guide the company to a staggering 21% improvement in period 8, easily the best posted, to move them from the foot of the table, but sadly for "EMC" it was the opposite story as they slipped 4 places after failing to win any new work, although there is confidence they can reverse this trend in the next round. In a quarter of growth almost across the board "EcoAegis" and "D's & C's only" also enjoyed encouraging growth figures of 12 and 11% respectively. At the top of the table "Engineerial" remain the team to catch on 1,542 pts, but the chasing pack all outperformed them to close the gap, with "MEC Ltd" moving up one place to second, and the aforementioned "D's & C's only" climbing 2 places to 3rd, and only 2 points further back.
