Roughan & O'Donovan's (ROD) status as an Engineers Ireland Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Accredited Employer has been extended for the maximum reaccreditation period of three years.
The Engineers Ireland CPD Accredited Employer standard is recognised as the national benchmark for organisations across all sectors of engineering, and recognises employers who adopt and commit to best practices in their choice of learning and development initiatives.
Speaking at the parchment presentation in our head office in Sandyford last week, Engineers Ireland CPD Associate Director, Aidan O’Flaherty, said:
I wish to congratulate ROD on its commitment to the continuing professional development of its people and to setting high standards in support of lifelong learning. ROD’s CPD committee submitted extensive evidence of robust CPD policies and processes and, when audited, they were found to have satisfied all our criteria at either ‘advanced’ or ‘transformational’ level.
In the last 12 months, our team at ROD has grown to 190, and we have opened new offices in Santry and in Otley in Leeds. Against this background of expansion and development, investment in the continued development of our CPD strategy has become more important than ever before.
Benchmarking our CPD efforts against the rigorous standard set by Engineers Ireland’s CPD Accredited Employer programme is important, not just in terms of helping us attract, retain and develop our people across all areas of the business, but also to achieving our strategic business objectives and preparing us for future challenges.
