Celebrating Our Team’s Learning and Development

Certificate in Management Partnership with the University of Limerick is marked with special event

Recently, 16 members of the Ei Electronics team graduated from the University of Limerick with a Certificate in Management. At a private event held on campus, the Dean of the Kemmy Business School presented the graduates with their parchments, along with several other members of the Management Development Unit in attendance from the University of Limerick.

The demand for the Management course amongst Ei’s large workforce lead to lectures being held on campus in Ei’s Centre of Excellence for the applicants before being moved online due to the pandemic. The course has allowed the Ei team to develop in their roles internally as well as having the option to progress further into their studies, with some moving on to Diploma level.

“The on-site facilitation of this allowed an un-matched learning experience for our team. Learning and development is an integral part of our strategy for growth and success now and for years to come. With the success of this programme in it’s first year we’re looking forward to continuing on again this year with a new group of students while our graduates for this year move onto the next stage in their development.”

Ei Electronics CEO, Mick Guinee

With graduations within the University being virtual this year, Ei’s Centre of Excellence presented a large space to hold a socially distanced event with some special attendees from the University to mark the graduate’s achievement. The Ei team and University delegates arrived to the event in their academic robes to watch the live stream of the event, including the inaugural address from UL President Kerstin Mey before being presented with their parchments.

The outbreak of covid-19 lead to a large number of team members looking at upskilling and continuing their life-long-learning. With the range of funding supports available for courses through various education and training providers nationally,  as well as courses held internally across a range of areas, the company is excited to see the impact of this commitment.
