It was great to see reports of the outstanding efforts of companies and individuals in our civil construction industry, recognised at the Z Energy People Awards 2014.
The awards were organised by the New Zealand Contractors’ Federation and supported by Connexis, and included emerging leader and trainee of the year categories. Companies were also singled out for their efforts in developing the skills and potential of their employees (Downer New Zealand, Goodman Contractors, and Construction Contracts in separate categories based on turnover).
In such a busy industry there can be a tendency to focus solely on the project immediately ahead. Awards such as these are a good reminder of the benefits for companies and individuals to also continue to invest in the future.
