Our People & Culture

The FES Group provides an environment and company culture that allows employees to thrive and achieve personal excellence, to the on-going benefit of the business

Our HR philosophy leans heavily on the family business ethos which assists employees to meet their own goals and aspirations. These are addressed through on-going loyalty and support which encourages staff to raise their individual standards of achievement and by providing more holistic rewards.

The FES Group has consistently maintained strong family values and a commitment to, wherever possible, promote and develop talent from within the company and to retain and retrain staff.

All staff are actively encouraged to undertake focused CPD covering technical enhancement, customer relations development and management skills training. This generates an ethos of trust and confidence that individual effort will be recognised and personal development will be rewarded. This approach, as the company has expanded, required the organisation to commit to a significant training and development programme to ensure that all staff are able to cope with the demands of changing business expectations.

FES can demonstrate that the services employees provide are recognised in terms of the industry awards received for excellence in service or safety. In the last 10 years FES has received 11 national recognition awards, including the British Safety Council’s Sword of Honour (Health & Safety Excellence) and Globe of Honour (Environmental Excellence). These awards demonstrate that the attention to detail in FES technical compliance training provided through the QUEST system which enables FES to provide an almost flawless service when supporting clients in their businesses.
