Leadership in Engineering: Tritech’s Approach to Success

November 7, 2023 Published by Tritech Engineering

At Tritech we’re all about helping our clients to optimise the performance of their buildings. But we’ve also put a lot of effort and investment into building a leadership and culture focused on helping our people optimise their performance too.

When we started out back in 1999, our mission was to deliver complex engineering projects in commercial environments to the highest standards. We knew we had all of the experience and the expertise to live up to that goal, but we quickly realised we couldn’t do it without having the right people on our team, and providing them with all of the right support, training and equipment they need.

Our people feel like they belong

In recent years, a sense of purpose and belonging has emerged as one of the biggest drivers of employee engagement and retention. It inspires people in their work and drives them to strive for better results.

As we invest in our people at Tritech and see them grow and progress, it is clear that our staff want more than just a job. What they really want is purpose, in the form of a career that gives them more meaning and more opportunities for personal development.

“For me, I like to see a clear career path and opportunities in the future – the Tritech people are all nurtured along so that we can optimise our skills and talents, based on our individual ambitions.”

Our leaders lead by example

There are more than 180 people working at Tritech, led by a team of people with wide and diverse experience from all over the world in mechanical and electrical design, procurement, installation and maintenance.

Passionate about people and technology, many of the people on our management team worked their way up from apprenticeships through the trades as plumbers, electricians and engineers to where they are now. With a focus on health & safety and training at all levels, our management team stays close to the people working on the ground to support them in completing projects to the standard and specification our clients require.

“The Directors at Tritech are sound, normal people who manage by example and by rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in the jobs.”

“For me it’s about having a leadership team who are genuinely interested in our projects and the best way to achieve clients’ objectives. There’s a two-way flow of information and learning.”

Tritech Academy

We are constantly looking to recruit new talent and give them the best possible start. With this in mind, we looked at the place where most people start their careers in construction and engineering – as an apprentice – and established the Tritech Academy, to give people the proper foundations to realise their potential. From the moment our apprentices begin, we continually track their progress and development. We help them improve their skills, and mentor each individual on their path to becoming better qualified and more expert in their trade.

In 2022, four of our apprentices were invited to the Worldskills Ireland event at Dublin’s RDS where Gareth Mullen was awarded Construction Apprentice of the Year in the plumbing category.
