Six businesses have made the shortlist for this year’s Employer of the Year Awards.

The accolades celebrate organisations with progressive strategies for recruiting, nurturing and empowering young people. There are three award categories, for small, medium and large companies, with one overall winner. The shortlisted companies are:

  • Small: S I Sealy & Associates and Services Design Solution (SDS)
  • Medium: Elementa and Black & White Engineering
  • Large: Aecom and Hoare Lea.

Together with the Graduate of the Year competition, the awards form part of the CIBSE Young Engineers’ Awards, sponsored by Andrews Water Heaters, Kingspan Industrial Insulation, Swegon Air Management and the CIBSE Patrons.

Kevin Mitchell, chair of the CIBSE Employer of the Year judging panel – and the first winner of the graduate award – said entries had been particularly difficult to separate.

‘The standard was very high, which is extremely heartening in light of the sector’s ongoing battle with skills shortages,’ he said.

Winners will be announced at the awards night on 11 October, at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, in London, where the Graduate of the Year finalists will also give their presentations. You can find out more about the student finalists on page 22.

The event is free to attend, but pre-registration is required. More details are available here
