2020 Skills Highway Award

2020 Skills Highway Award

We are thrilled to congratulate Westco Lumber Limited for winning the Skills Highway Award at the Diversity Awards in Auckland on 16 September 2020.

Westco Lumber Ltd wanted to reinvigorate a culture of learning among its workers, recognising that an engaged workforce has been key to its success.

Bringing in outside training company Conquest Training Ltd in 2019 has led to key members of Westco’s 90-strong workforce taking part in a learning programme. The learning programme followed an individual plan suited to each employee’s ability and need – and the results have already been impressive.

HEB Construction was the other finalist in the Skills Highway category.
