Ahead of entries for the Irish News Workplace & Employment Awards closing on Monday April 8, construction firm Errigal has been speaking of its “pride and delight” at coming on board again as a Gold business partner for this year’s initiative.

Errigal is a market leading construction company, with specialist expertise in partition systems, external façade, interior fitout, ceilings and bespoke solutions.

Its track record in these specialist areas is internationally renowned and, as a result, Errigal is able to provide an exceptional service on construction projects of all sizes.

As well as a dedicated manufacturing facility at its headquarters in Monaghan, it also has regional offices in Dungiven as well as in London and Europe.

The company’s people director Martina Corrigan said: “As one of the proud sponsors of the awards, we are delighted to once again support a prestigious event which serves as a celebration of excellence, innovation, and inclusivity within our community.

“We firmly believe in recognising companies that prioritise their people and foster environments where talent can thrive, reflecting our commitment to championing values such as diversity, equality, and inclusion.”

She added: “Central to our business ethos is the belief that investing in the next generation of industry professionals is paramount to our collective growth and prosperity.

“By nurturing young talent and providing them with opportunities to learn and develop, we not only strengthen our own organisation but also contribute to the vitality of the broader industry.

“Having been a member of the judging panel for last year’s Irish News Workplace & Employment Awards, we witnessed first hand the remarkable volume of applicants and the exceptional calibre of entries.

“It was truly inspiring to see the diverse array of businesses, each demonstrating innovation and passion in their respective fields. This experience affirmed our belief in the immense talent and potential within our region, driving our eagerness to continue celebrating excellence in the upcoming awards.”
