The Naas-based multidisciplinary building and civil engineering firm, Clonmel Enterprises Limited (CEL), has achieved the Engineers Ireland Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Accredited Employer standard.
The company is involved in the construction and upgrade of roads, bridges, utility installation, flood defence, industrial, commercial and residential building works. In the recent past, CEL faced significant challenges due to reduced public and private funding for infrastructure projects. During that time, the organisation focused on improving internal structures to support the development of staff.
With the industry now in growth, CEL is well positioned to deliver both large- and small-scale engineering and building projects.
At the parchment presentation held at the company offices in County Kildare, Caroline Spillane, director general of Engineers Ireland congratulated Clonmel Enterprises Limited on achieving the accredited standard and said: “It’s clear that the senior management team in this organisation has a strong commitment to developing its people. As economies become more prosperous again, and demand for civil engineering increases, I believe CEL will continue to expand its operations and will benefit from the strategic approach facilitated by the CPD Accredited Employer Standard.”
Eamonn Stapleton, CEL managing director commented: “As an organisation, we realise the value of continuing professional development and this accreditation is an endorsement of our commitment to CPD. We understand that investment in people is required to drive innovation and improve processes and we are delighted to achieve the Engineers Ireland Accredited Employer Standard.”
The Engineers Ireland CPD Accredited Employer Standard is a strategic framework which enables engineers and engineering employers raise competence levels and deliver tangible business benefits by investing in engineers through continuing professional development.
