blu-3, specialist infrastructure provider to the European data centre and UK construction market, has announced it is further investing in a programme of culture and people development to support the company’s ambitious growth strategy.
Having relocated to new headquarters in Kent in 2017, in order to provide a state-of-the-art business environment for its employees alongside new health and wellbeing programmes, the company has now announced investment in Start Inspiring, an organisation that partners with senior leaders and teams to create sustainable workplaces that are ready for the future demands of business.
People and Culture Manager Hayley Marshall commented: “At blu-3, we are proud of the continued growth and development we have achieved in recent years, both in terms of the business and the fantastic talent we have in our team. This growth must continue.
“Our values as a business must always come first, as we continue to foster an environment where our people can thrive and carry out their best work. That’s why we’ve recently brought in Start Inspiring to help us take the next leap and focus on tomorrow’s people and culture needs today.”
The programme aims to arm blu-3 individuals with new skills and unlock meaningful engagement and long-term commercial success. Their work will also be complemented by
a newly created ‘Develop our Futur-3’ programme for the blu-3 leadership team which enables it, and the wider blu-3 workforce, to learn and grow together.
Marshall added: “The programme isn’t an off-the-shelf solution. We specifically wanted to co-create something with a partner who would respect our heritage and feel authentic to our team, while challenging us to be better.
“We are confident that with this focus on our people strategy that blu-3 will continue to evolve and provide an environment for our employees to thrive and to do their best work. Put simply – we’re on a mission to be an undisputed employer of choice in construction because we believe this is the best way to serve our clients and our people.”
