Irish owned PM Group is the winner of the 2016 CPD Employer of the Year Excellence Award from Engineers Ireland. Based on their CPD accreditation report for this year, PM Group received the highest rating in Ireland for their programme.  The company’s Innovation in Action programme was highlighted as an important part of the accreditation.

Speaking about the award win, Dave Murphy, CEO of PM Group, said: “We are delighted to have won the CPD Employer of the Year Excellence Award from Engineers Ireland for 2016. As we are currently recruiting 500 graduates over 5 years, I am particularly happy that our graduate programme has been recognised as best-in-class as part of this award. We want employees to have fulfilling, exciting and challenging careers here in PM Group and we have found that our continuous professional development programme is an important tool to attract new employees. Our CPD programme offers real value to the company and to employees.”

“As a company we invested considerably in continuous professional development because we are at our best when we go beyond problem-solving and create a knowledge-sharing company. To build CPD into our everyday working lives, we changed our culture, created CPD champions, matched our CPD practises to our business strategy, and fostered a spirit of creativity throughout the company. I want to congratulate all of the team involved in the rollout of the CPD programme, and to thank all our PM Group staff who are committed every day to being the best in the industry.”

The structured programme offers huge benefits with a tailored programme for each employee offering regular lunchtime learning sessions, e-learning, and mentoring. The graduate programme is structured to include monthly training days, covering technical, communications and project management skills, and which also provides a placement abroad in one of PM Group’s offices, aligned to match their professional specialist area. The training aims to bring creativity and new ideas to PM Group’s work, sharing lessons learned across their markets in Ireland, the UK, Poland, Asia and the US.

Employees can also take part in the core management competency training and the senior management team can take a MsC in Executive Leadership as part of their tailored training.
