Our employees at ACWA make this a winning entry. 2020 was a year of substantial change for ACWA and through using structured processes coupled with transparent and comprehensive communications the changes have been embraced and embedded to create a better culture and improved positive behaviours.
ACWA has come so far in 2020 and laid the foundations to build upon and continue into the future in a more stable better structured and more sustainable way. From creating a new vision and purpose to implementing and living our values the employees have been involved every step of the way. There is always room for improvement and for example; 2021 sees the first use of the new performance review form developed and approved in 2020 which will ensure employees have personal and career focussed targets and goals.
ACWA stands out from the crowd in 2020 because, whilst many organisations were struggling in 2020 ACWA was going from strength to strength. Recruitment was at an all-time high, problem projects were being turned around and the company turned a profit.
The level of change the employees have faced in 2020 including a new Managing Director, new members of the senior management team and other new hires coupled with changes in working practices especially COVID related and adapting to working from home or with a skeleton team in the office has shown that they are a great team and they deserve this award to help reiterate how valued they are.
There are many successes that can be shared with industry and the best way to do this is to tell our positive story and work with our supply chain to further improve not only our processes and procedures but theirs as well. By improving our behaviours and creating a better working environment and culture we are now able to share this throughout the supply chain making improvements throughout our industry.
Collaborating with the supply chain using products such as Intuety to bring augmented reality into the workplace and helping to raise the standards was a key focus area in 2020 and this is already being shared throughout our supply chain. 2021 will also see ACWA inviting members of the supply chain to the health and safety stand down day so best practice can be shared and the understanding of culture and expected behaviours can be unified.
