  • Publish Date: Posted 12 months ago

Shirley Parsons Careers Consultant Hannah Martinez joined APS Professional Development Week to share her expert advice and guidance on how to create a successful career.

As part of the Association for Project Safety Professional Development Week, Shirley Parsons Careers Consultant Hannah Martinez was asked to join a live webinar to offer her expert advice on how to ‘level up your career’ and discuss current market expectations.

In association with The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the webinar, which received 4.9 / 5 for interest and relevance and was attended by over 100 individuals, aimed to help grow your career and take the next step towards your professional goals.

HSEQ Market Insights.

During the webinar Hannah was able to draw upon Shirley Parsons 2023 HSEQ & Sustainability Survey and reveal which factors are important to talent attraction and development.

Undertaken during the first quarter of 2023, the insights covered topics including work aspirations, job satisfaction, average salaries and the diverse gender pay gap.

The results showed the three most important factors when considering a new position were management style, work content and culture, and the most unsatisfied factors among participants were bonus scheme, progression, and the ESG / Sustainability Strategy.

Attendees of the webinar said:

“An interesting review of industry statistics which will invoke much further consideration.”

“I didn’t think it would be relevant to me, but it’s relevant to everyone with a career. It’s good to know your worth and what you can do to improve.”

“The divide between generations was evident and Hannah gave us a great insight into the date, which was appreciated.”
