In a large organisation there can be a fear of being treated like a number, but Marcel says that his skills have been recognised and valued, and leaders have provided him with opportunities to grow and develop.
There’s definitely room for, and recognition of, good ideas. Our leadership at the regional and national level are interested in new initiatives and ideas that improve the way we work. There is certainly the potential to make a difference.
Never content to sit still for long, Marcel is close to completing a PhD in Construction Management, knowledge which he will apply in his new role. Fletcher’s investment in training and developing its people is another reason for joining the company he says, citing initiatives like the Fletcher Building employee education fund, apprenticeships and cadetships as well as support for continual professional development.
