Groups / HR


People are the key to any successful business and our industry has a range of sector-specific issues to address.

Our Human Resources forum (HR forum) exists to share best practice in this area and tackle the major HR issues affecting our industry. This includes addressing the sector’s skills gap, attracting and retaining millennial workers and ensuring we don’t lose the knowledge, expertise and experience of a generation of engineers and consultants who will soon retire.

Recent topics covered include the impact of Brexit on skills and recruitment, equality and diversity and safeguarding. 

First established in 2007, the forum also covers issues such as equality and diversity, as well as training and education. Much of the forum's output can be found on our Resource Hub.

The forum meets quarterly. Members include representatives of the following ACE member companies: Acies, Arcadis, BCal, BWB Consulting, Clancy Consulting, Cundall, Pick Everard, Hoare Lea, IMC, Max Fordham, Mott MacDonald, David NarroRoughton, Stantec, Troup Bywaters + Anders, Waterman and Robert West.

The Chair is Gareth Drought of Tony Gee and Partners.
