Employees from across Tarmac are taking part in a UK-wide employee development programme (EDP) as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to helping its people build careers.
Now in its fourth year, the EDP sees around 200 colleagues from across Tarmac, supported by a mentor, work in collaboration to tackle a range of business challenges before delivering a final presentation to senior leaders. Topics being researched by this year’s group include communication methods for colleagues at some of Tarmac’s remote sites across the country, new ways to attract more people to the industry, and developing inclusion and diversity activities.
The scheme was initiated by a team in the company’s southern region working to expand development opportunities for colleagues before being rolled out nationally. The programme itself runs over seven months and is a combination of work-related projects and classroom-based learning modules, including presentations skills and finance training for non-finance managers.
The EDP is part of the company’s efforts to support and encourage colleagues at all stages of their career, to build new skills and experiences to help them succeed and thrive.
“We are really excited to be continuing our EDP programme, which offers colleagues the opportunity to expand their networks, learn more about the wider Tarmac organisation, and develop ideas and proposals that can make a real difference to the business,” said Graeme Boylen, HR Director at Tarmac.
“I’m really proud to be involved in the EDP scheme and am passionate about supporting change in the construction industry,” said Beth Williams, a proposals engineer based in Derbyshire. “This project is a great opportunity to get to know colleagues from across Tarmac and develop a range of skills and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
