SEEPEX – Retention, not just recruitment

6 ways to protect your company from the skills crisis

14 January 2019


The manufacturing industry is in the grip of a well-documented skills crisis, with the government estimating that 186,000 new engineers will be needed each year until 2024. In a recent survey by EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, three-quarters of manufacturers say they are concerned about accessing the skills their businesses need. This challenge is being compounded by the digital revolution, low unemployment and Brexit, prompting many companies to redouble their efforts to attract the next generation of engineers.

For one company, the focus has not simply been on talent recruitment, but talent retention. Progressive cavity pump supplier SEEPEX UK operates at the forefront of pump technology, delivering smart solutions with lowest lifecycle costs that automate key processes for companies in the energy, food and drink, oil and gas, and water industries, among others.

By focusing on personal development and strong leadership, SEEPEX has fostered a culture of continuous improvement. It has recently been awarded the Investors In People gold standard for the third consecutive time,demonstrating continued strong commitment to high performance through good people management. Investors in People (IIP) is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the IIP framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.
