Intrinsic joins Choose To Challenge campaign for International Women’s Day

Intrinsic FE colleagues joined together (at home) to support the Choose To Challenge campaign for this year’s International Women’s Day. Raising their hands high, the team pledged their commitment to addressing the diversity imbalance within the engineering sector.

“Don’t let our modest size fool you into thinking that we’re not committed to diversity in the workplace, and the wider engineering sector,” states IFE Director Chris Roberts.

“We’re currently recruiting,” he adds, “and believe it could make the perfect career move for a suitably qualified professional who identifies as female. Intrinsic FE is a dynamic team, presently a third female, and the business punches above its weight in a crowded market.”

He goes on: “We operate in a demanding and competitive sector, but our employees are engaged, well-supported and valued with room to develop. Moreover, we’re a friendly and inclusive bunch.

Choose to Challenge – wellbeing matters

“Staff know we have their interests at heart and can offer flexibility when needed around changing personal circumstances. When the Covid-19 pandemic stopped us meeting in person, it offered an opportunity to develop our shared virtual space: regular MS Teams catch-ups gave us all the chance to check-in more frequently than in-person schedules might allow. The past year threw up personal challenges for everyone, but it’s intrinsic to the way we operate that we found ways to help colleagues achieve a balance that worked.

“Furthermore, as professional engineers we undertake projects designed to help clients optimise building services within their portfolios. But increasingly, this work reflects our intrinsic wellbeing values: the pandemic has helped us re-evaluate what really matters at work and beyond, and shone a new light on what wellbeing means to us individually. We hope that our sister company i-Wellbeing, which was launched in early 2020, will help us – and other businesses – deliver that even more comprehensively.”
