Developing our people, come rain or shine
Focusing on continuous professional development
Come rain or shine, people are our top priority at Entec Si. Keeping up our commitment to our team’s development, 21 employees from across the organisation have gained professional qualifications or completed training courses over the past few months.
Charlotte Stanyer, Eilis Garton-Marrows, Anita Devi, Megan Evans and Zoe Eccleston have gained PRINCE2 or Agile qualifications. Tamara Pleasant achieved an Agile BA Foundation and Practitioner qualification in Business Analysis. Charlotte has also been awarded a BSc Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis.
Investing in personal growth
As well as a focus on sharpening up our team’s professional skills, we’ve also invested in their personal growth. 14 employees got involved in the Leading by Nature programme, to improve their communication and leadership skills through interaction with horses. Similarly 12 more employees undertook training sessions at Little Bird, that focus on leadership skills and personal growth.
Our junior project manager, Megan Evans, commented:
“I was keen to do my Agile PM course, to help me broaden my armoury of project management tools. Making use of the extra time on my hands during the pandemic to gain a new qualification was a really rewarding experience. Entec Si’s dedication to growing its people is clear to see. If your team comes out of a pandemic stronger than they went into it, you must be doing something right!”
Speaking about her professional and personal development experience during the pandemic, our senior consultant Julie Smith added:
“My first week of furlough was a strange week. It took me from a busy working schedule to a much slower pace of life. I soon realised that for my mental health, I needed to add some structure back into my day. Embarking on some focused training courses allowed me to develop new skills that have benefitted me on my return to work.”
