Future proofing our workforce
We’re big on pipes at NGN, but we’re even bigger on people.
Without motivated colleagues who believe in what they are doing, we can’t hope to become the world-beating business we aspire to be.
We’ve improved conversations with our workforce, through regular get-togethers to discuss hot topics, and an accessible senior management team that gets out and about across the network. Crucially, these sessions are not just talking shops – they lead to genuine change.
We have a unique relationship with our contractors. We use local engineering firms to deliver all our mains replacement work, as we find their local knowledge and pride in the job benefits everyone. We’ve recently renegotiated new eight-year contracts with these companies, underlying our commitment to these partnerships.
We also remain committed to graduate and apprentice schemes, giving young job seekers a flying start while future proofing our business.
