We place great emphasis on quality engineering, client success and developing lasting relationships – these factors drive our teams to deliver solutions that achieve cost-effective, long-term results for our clients.
Leading by example is very important to all of us at global associates. That’s why we have taken the strategic decision to invest in training, with the objective of having 50% of our engineering and client servicing teams hailing directly from our global training academy within the next five years.
Our academy provides market leading apprenticeships and training. The decision to cultivate and develop home-grown talent in this way required significant investment in the short-term, and we are confident it will cement our status as market leaders over the long-term, as we bring through the next generation of BeMS innovators and leaders.
Our entire team is aligned to helping develop the UK’s engineering and technology talent, and we believe that this encouragement should start young; that’s why we are supporters and sponsors of the Kent Bright Spark programme, which gives the next generation valuable exposure to commercial expertise and experience.
With an increasing trend of convergence as clients look to integrate a wider range of their digital assets, we are offering an increasing set of IT integration solutions; as well as undertaking energy, optimisation, security and regulatory compliance audits to ensure our clients are meeting their obligations in a rapidly evolving world of regulation. As a company we embrace change and innovation. In 2012, we undertook a significant internal restructuring programme as a new wave of digital evolution began to influence our industry. Rapid advancements in technology and an increasing demand for innovation by clients, put digital at the heart of our business model, as we continue to provide thought leadership that drives tangible results, using a wide range of market leading and new innovative technologies for clients.
As the company grew, we extended our range of services, and are now recognised as the UK’s leading Building Energy Management Systems (BeMS) solution provider, with offices in both the south and north of the country. We aim to be the market leading choice for our clients; and the standard bearer for the industry. We will only offer a service or product to the market, if we are committed to being the leader in that space.
