According to the ECITB, the rate of training and development, already crucial in this strategically important industry, is set to grow, as the industry grows significantly to meet the demand for new energy infrastructure. The highly skilled workforce will need to increase dramatically over the next 5 – 15 years.
Paul Bunyan, C&P’s managing director commented: “We are delighted to have received this highly commendable award as runners up. It is a credit to our employee’s and their focus on continued learning and growth through training and development. We would also like to congratulate the event organisers and sponsors for an enjoyable and memorable evening.”
