Specialist for the insurance industry Auger has seen a fresh group of 12 staff graduate through its industry-leading academy.
The company has launched its own Auger Academy aimed at supporting and developing both the company’s external engineering team based across the UK and internal staff at head office. The growing business – serving the UK insurance industry in drainage and water mains services – has made a number of appointments in the last 12 months as part of an expansion programme and is still recruiting to meet continuing demand from clients.
Training under the academy includes partnering engineers with senior staff and offering industry-specific courses. This is supported by bespoke software tools and apps which allow staff to file information and reports quickly and easily from wherever they are in the UK.
Nicola Lyon, head of recruitment and people development at Auger, said: “As Auger grows it is vital to focus on staff development. “When assistant engineers join Auger they will quickly move through the ranks of the academy as they learn the ropes from more experienced members of staff, and go on to become trusted members of the team. “We are constantly encouraging staff to not only grow and develop their skills through our internal training, but to take part in industry courses and even schemes that they can suggest themselves. “The Auger Academy is leading the way in the industry, making sure our staff offer best practice at all levels and it’s a great way to track and encourage training and development of our people.”
