ENGIE celebrates the success of its Apprentices at Annual Apprenticeship Awards 2018
ENGIE’s UK Annual Apprenticeship Awards, now in their second year, aim to celebrate the achievements of ENGIE apprentices and the behaviours they demonstrate in their work.
Over 160 people attended the event at London’s Café de Paris on 27th September 2018. The awards, which received over 70 nominations from across the business, were presented in ten categories - including alignment to our behaviours, special recognition, manager of the year and overall apprentice of the year. Manager of the Year was presented to Tracey Booth MBE, Workforce Development Manager and the Overall Apprentice of the Year Award was won by Charlie Headdock, Trainee Quantity Surveyor.
ENGIE, a leading energy & services employer in the UK, currently has over 280 apprentices across its three main activities – energy, services and regeneration. Apprentices form an important part of ENGIE’s approach to skills and training, to help develop its next generation of ‘imaginative builders’ and are a key driver to helping achieve its vision. ENGIE offers over 70 different apprenticeship pathways for new and existing staff – supporting, training and shaping its talent to become the managers, experts and leaders of the future.
ENGIE UK Chief HR Director Rosanna Longobardi said: “Our behaviours define us. They make us what we are, they define how we work, how we behave, and how the world sees us. They are central to the services we deliver to our customers, and these awards demonstrate the commitment of our apprentices and their managers in aligning our values with those of our customers to create a true spirit of partnership.”
Chris Mayer, ENGIE UK Head of Talent, added: “We are very proud of our apprenticeship programme. We have doubled our number of apprentices in the last 2 years and anticipate continued growth to demonstrate that apprenticeships are an effective and viable route into the workplace. Our Apprenticeship Awards evening is a truly special event that focuses on celebrating the importance of apprenticeships and the value they and their line managers bring to our business. Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone involved in making the evening a success!”
