Attracting and Nurturing Talent

Attracting and Nurturing Talent

Regular readers of our blogs will know that at Energylab we are passionate about developing our talented team, and also helping attract new talent to our industry.  So a recent survey published by The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) regarding recruitment of young engineers – Recruitment Solutions 2020 – made a very interesting read, with some surprising results.  The analysis of engineering sectors that graduates wanted to work was particularly interesting. The Energy sector...
Goodbye January…

Goodbye January…

January always brings mixed feelings. The start of the month holds great promise - a new page turned and we are all full of new and exciting ideas and resolutions for the year ahead. But by mid-month the sheen has worn off; the resolutions are already becoming a drag and payday feels like a lifetime away. It’s safe to say that, for most of us, the January blues have well and truly kicked in. But...
Happy 2020 and happy new decade!

Happy 2020 and happy new decade!

Happy New Year to everyone – I hope it finds you well. The new year, and in particular a new decade, is often a time for reflection, and this is no different for us here at Energylab. We are now entering our 7th year in business, and a lot has changed for us in that time. From modest beginnings back in 2013, we are now a team of 7, with a diverse skill set and...
A very ‘lab_’ Christmas, just like the ones we used to know…

A very ‘lab_’ Christmas, just like the ones we used to know…

Any friends of ours here at Energylab who have known us for a while, will know that, as part of the lab_ collective, we don’t do Christmas parties by half. They’re far from ‘normal’ - as is probably our way with most things, now we think about it!  Of course, this Christmas was no different. As we all locked up the office on the chilly morning of the 12th of December, no one knew quite...
Integrity in our Industry – What are we doing to inspire the next generation?

Integrity in our Industry – What are we doing to inspire the next generation?

I recently took part in the CIBSE Build2Perform Conference, where I was part of a panel discussion on integrity within the industry. My short presentation focused on how we need to attract more young talent to our industry, but we are not doing a very good job so far! This led me to look back on an article I wrote last year on a similar topic, which I have reproduced below. Unfortunately, it seems little...

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2018 was a successful year for you and that 2019 also holds promise. For Energylab, 2018 marked our 5th year in business and proved to be a successful one. We won a number of prestigious projects and also won a couple of awards. Our Founding Partner, Marian Ferguson, won the MEP category at the European WICE Awards, while our practice won Best Engineering Design Consultancy at BUILD…

Why Diversity matters

Why Diversity matters

Diversity and its bedfellow, Equality, are high profile at the moment and making news headlines both in the UK and in the international arena. About time too. What does this mean for the construction industry, often seen as one of the least diverse sectors? The construction industry has been attempting to change its image for some time and the momentum on equality and diversity will hopefully help this along. I personally have seen some great…
