Restructure announced by trade association

27 September 2017

A major exercise in reorganising its management and staff has been announced by the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA).

Focusing resources on increasing value to members was the main aim of the exercise, involved reduction of staff numbers in certain areas and consolidating member services to improve the efficiency of operations, it stated.

The changes follow an extensive review period dating back two years to the appointment of BESA chief executive Paul McLaughlin.

Principle aims of the exercise include accelerating the recruitment of new members and continuing to grow the BESA training provision.

This is in response to member feedback calling for more focus on training, legal and commercial support.

Technical information has also been increased by using the "considerable reserves of knowledge that already exist within member companies, reducing the need for a large internal technical team", the statement read.

Mr McLaughlin emphasised the need to continually review strategies "in an ever-changing trading environment.

"A strategic review of activities has been undertaken to ensure that the association is focused on providing the products and services that most add value to members, and that these are delivered in the most efficient way possible," he said.
