Suir Engineering announces sponsorship of Waterford GAA

Waterford, Ireland – 01 March 2024 – Suir Engineering was today confirmed as the official sponsor of Waterford GAA’s county teams in both hurling and football. The new county jersey, along with all leisurewear will carry the Suir Engineering logo, as part of a three year deal to sponsor both codes at Senior, U20’s and Minor grades. Headquartered in Waterford, Suir Engineering is one of the country’s leading engineering services providers. Established in 1984 and celebrating 40 years in business this year, the company employs more than 1,500 people.

Brendan Moley, Chief Operations Officer at Suir Engineering said: “With such a strong presence and legacy in Waterford and indeed right across the south-east, this is a particularly significant sponsorship for the business. Gaelic games are in the DNA of our company; many of our team members are active GAA players, supporters and volunteers and Suir Engineering has a long history of both GAA and wider community support.

“There are many synergies between Suir Engineering and Waterford GAA, which makes this exciting partnership a formidable one, and we are very much looking forward to working together for the mutual benefit of both organisations. “While we are a large business with a global footprint, our local roots are hugely important to us and we recognise the crucial role that sport plays and the value it
brings to our community and county.”

“As we celebrate 40 years in business this sponsorship is a further reason for celebration. We wish the County Board, management and players of Waterford’s hurling and football teams the very best of luck for the incoming season, where we hope there will be even more cause for celebration.”

Waterford Chairman, Sean Micheal O’Regan, said, “We in Waterford GAA are delighted to have a company like Suir Engineering as our new team sponsors. They are an outstanding and successful Waterford based International Company and we are so proud to have them as our Title Sponsor and look forward to a strong and successful partnership into the future.”

Blue Monday

Nurturing a Positive Work Environment: Suir Engineering’s Commitment to Mental Health on Blue Monday

In the fast-paced world of engineering and construction, the well-being of employees often takes a backseat amidst the demanding nature of projects and deadlines. However, at Suir Engineering, we believe that our greatest asset is our people. As we acknowledge Blue Monday, dubbed as the most challenging day of the year for mental health, we are proud to shed light on our commitment to fostering a positive work environment.

Employee Assistance Programme

Suir Engineering understands that personal and professional challenges can impact an individual’s mental well-being. Our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is designed to provide support to our team members facing various life stressors. Whether it’s dealing with financial concerns, family issues, or personal challenges, our confidential EAP offers a range of services, including free confidential services and resources, to help our employees navigate through difficult times.

Lighthouse Club Assistance Programme

As part of our commitment to the well-being of our team, Suir Engineering is proud to be associated with the Lighthouse Club Assistance Programme. This initiative focuses on providing financial and emotional support to construction industry workers and their families facing challenging circumstances. By participating in this program, Suir Engineering aims to contribute to a broader community that values the mental health and overall welfare of those working in the construction sector.

Trained Mental Health First Aiders

Recognising the importance of immediate support in times of crisis, Suir Engineering has invested in training a dedicated team of mental health first aiders. These individuals are strategically placed at our project sites and offices, serving as a crucial point of contact for anyone in need. Trained to recognise the signs of mental distress and equipped with the skills to provide initial assistance, our mental health first aiders play a vital role in ensuring a supportive and compassionate work environment.

Promoting Open Dialogue

At Suir Engineering, we believe that addressing mental health concerns starts with open and honest communication. We encourage our employees to share their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. Through regular awareness campaigns, workshops, and team-building activities, we strive to create an inclusive atmosphere where mental health is prioritised, and stigma is dismantled.

As we observe Blue Monday, Suir Engineering reaffirms its dedication to prioritising the mental health and well-being of our employees. Our comprehensive approach, encompassing the Employee Assistance Programme, involvement in the Lighthouse Club Assistance Programme, and the presence of trained mental health first aiders, reflects our commitment to fostering a workplace culture that values everyone’s journey. By taking proactive steps and initiating meaningful conversations, Suir Engineering aims to contribute to a positive and supportive environment where our team members can thrive both personally and professionally.
