A HENDERSON-based company took home the WA Employer of the Year gong at the recent WA Training Awards.

Judges handed the award to heavy engineering firm Civmec for its commitment to delivering quality training and creating a positive culture for learning.

A Civmec spokeswoman said the company was delighted with the win.

“It is wonderful to be recognised as an industry leader through training and investment in our people,” she said.

“We place great emphasis on access and equity and we treat every employee as an individual when we train them.”

She said Civmec, which claimed one of 12 awards on the night, had concentrated effort into indigenous engagement and ensuring equal opportunities for all.

“We train a very multicultural workplace and we have worked hard to train women in non-traditional female roles in construction,” she said.

“We believe the type of industry engagement we have incorporated into our training is very important, especially when it comes to safety.”

In September Civmec also received the 2016 Corporate Business of the Year award announced during the Rockingham Kwinana Chamber of Commerce Regional Business Awards.
