In June 2018 Kali Byers joined the team as our Field Support Manager. Having quickly made an impact, Kali is now responsible for leading us in our mission to create an 'Auger Green' future as our Head of Sustainability & People Development.
During her early Auger career, Kali supported our network of nationwide engineers, ensuring they had access to the equipment and materials they needed to deliver an excellent service to our customers. In November 2018, Kali took on the role of Compliance Officer, which 2 years later broadened to include HR Support. Combining her previous two years of technical knowledge regarding industry standards with her understanding of Auger, she became a central source of guidance for our growing team.
Having refreshed our onboarding process for new starters in 2020, Kali continues to select and welcome new members of our team in her new role as Head of Sustainability & People Development. Kali supports candidates from their first telephone interview, through to their face-to-face inductions at Auger HQ, through which she ensures that our company culture and values are instilled within each new addition from the start.
As someone who is committed to her own development as well as her colleagues', Kali completed the IOSH Managing Safely course in December 2020. As Head of Sustainability & People Development, Kali maps and coordinates individual training programmes for all employees including 6-week new starter training, compulsory annual e-learning courses, and wider skills coaching and certification directed by external providers in areas such as Data Handling, Health & Safety and Leadership Skills Development.
Kali is also responsible for leading our journey towards net-zero, by working closely with our partners Normative to analyse our scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions from 2020 and 2021, in order to formulate a long term sustainability strategy. With a goal of securing a sustainable future for Auger and the communities we work within, her focus is on developing initiatives which will enable us to drive down our carbon emissions, whilst streamlining our current processes to improve operational efficiency.
Having seen what Kali has already achieved, we are confident in her ability to drive our ESG strategy into the future.
