Double Winners at CEF Awards
FLYNN once again proved its dedication to improving staff skills with a double success in the Quality Performance category of the Construction Excellence Awards. The company was shortlisted in four categories and came out on top in two sections-winning both the Health & Safety Award and the Training Award. As one of the leading providers of maintenance, construction and civil engineering services in Ireland, the company was also shortlisted in the Social/Community Construction category for its work on the Waterfront Hall refurbishment and in the Education Infrastructure category for the St Joseph’s Carnacaville project.
This is the second time in the last three years that FLYNN have won the Training Award and the overall success in the Quality Performance category is another demonstration of the company’s commitment to staff development. The company won Career Inspiration Award at the Irish News Awards earlier this year while apprentice Aaron Keenan won three accolades at Belfast Met Apprenticeship and Training Awards. The judges at the Irish News Awards stated that the company’s entry was head and shoulders above the competition and recognised the long term commitment within the business to offer opportunity to young people, support and develop their capabilities and offer a sustainable path for progression. Flynn prides itself on the quality of the service delivered and the professionalism of the people working for the company and this is evident in the continuing level of excellence delivered over the last 30 years.
Over the last three decades FLYNN have shown its commitment to training, placement and apprenticeship places to consistently exceed Government requirements. The company is supported by a three year Invest NI-backed training and development programme that offers support to every member of staff across the business and this is further enhanced by Flynn’s membership of the 5% Club that is focused on creating momentum behind the recruitment of apprentices and graduates into the workforce.(reprint courtesy of Northern Builder Magazine).
