Brussels, 17 June 2019 – SPIE Belgium, a subsidiary of SPIE, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the fields of energy and communication, was awarded the first prize this afternoon in the “Integration” category of the Brussels Construction Awards 2019, organized by Constructiv.
During an official ceremony at Brussels city hall this afternoon, SPIE Belgium came away with the first prize in the “integration” category of the Brussels Construction Awards organized for the first time by Constructiv, an organization that provides services to companies and workers in the construction industry.
With this prize, Constructiv aspires to reward the most deserving Brussels companies in the sector in three specific fields: “Skills Management,” “Wellbeing” and “Integration.”
SPIE Belgium distinguished itself in the “Integration” category through its actions to recruit and train its staff, the Emploi Tremplin Construction (ETC) [Construction Springboard to Employment] initiative, and the integration of new employees.
"We are extremely proud of this prize, which is a fine tribute to all our recruitment, orientation and development efforts for our employees in general and for our capacity to integrate and recruit young people,” outlines Jean-Pierre Martin, Human Resources Director of SPIE Belgium.
As the impact of coronavirus on our activities increases and in the face of ever-stricter government measures to halt its spread, SPIE Belgium would like to inform you about the steps it has taken within the organisation.
To this day:
SPIE Belgium has decided not to stop its activities completely, considering that some of these may be essential or even critical to maintaining the activities of companies in critical sectors and essential services that are vital to the smooth running of the country. This is being done, of course, in strict respect of the measures taken by the authorities, and treating the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our suppliers and sub-contractors as a priority.
This unprecedented crisis reminds us of the importance of two of our founding values: responsibility and proximity. By each taking our responsibilities, we will overcome this ordeal.
Drawing strength from our 120 years of experience and from the solidity of the Group to which we belong, we remain confident in the future and in our mutual capacity to adapt and be resilient.
