Construction News shortlists VolkerFitzpatrick for Training Excellence award


VolkerFitzpatrick has been shortlisted in the Training Excellence category for the upcoming Construction News Awards.

CN awards 2020

The Training Excellence category celebrates contractors who have demonstrated a positive and progressive approach to training and developing staff in the calendar year 2019. Applicants are assessed on the outcomes of their training initiatives, as well as the innovation shown in developing new training methods and the time allocated to training. The judges will also be looking for strong leadership and commitment to training, as well as evidence of an embedded culture of training.

Commenting, VolkerFitzpatrick managing director, Richard Offord, said: “It’s fantastic for our company to be recognised for its long-standing commitment to training and well done to our teams who have made this all possible. We genuinely care about providing opportunities and inspiring our people to develop professionally and personally.  We know it’s important to us all on an individual level, but it’s also a critical part of equipping our business for the future.”

The finalists will be announced at the Construction News Awards event which is hoped to take place on Wednesday 14 October 2020 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London. It is Construction News’ 24th event, celebrating the very best companies, projects and achievements in the industry.
