It has been a busy and interesting year for the SL Controls team as we welcomed new colleagues and got to know our existing colleagues better. Here are some of the stories we published throughout 2023 that give an insight into the people who make SL Controls the team and company it is.
Embracing Equity at SL Controls on International Women’s Day
“The Embrace Equity message is very powerful and it’s one we should all be aware of. At SL Controls, we support equity both in theory and practice, as we work hard to treat everyone as an individual.” – Shauna Ryan
Celebrating SL Controls Female Engineers on International Women in Engineering Day 2023
“I’d like young women to know that their personalities and strengths are required and valued by the best engineering companies. Diverse experiences and backgrounds really do promote innovation.” – Patricia Cowley
Celebrating Fathers Working at SL Controls
“The most fun thing about being a Dad has got to be answering questions like ‘where are the Gruffalos?’ during a visit to the Zoo.” – Dermot McMorrow
International Men’s Day at SL Controls – Building Mental Resilience
“Winning and losing in sports over the years has also helped me build up my mental resilience. How you come back from losing in a big game, for example, and how you cope with high-pressure situations.” – Keith Moran
We asked members of the SL Controls team celebrating #Diwali earlier this year what this annual festival means to them.
Giving Back to Our Communities
Various members of the SL Controls took part in a range of activities throughout 2023 to give back to our local communities. We have raised money for Ballybunion Sea and Cliff Rescue and the Children’s Health Foundation and donated Christmas gifts to children via St. Vincent de Paul. Our engineers have also spent time in primary schools delivering Engineering in a Box lessons as part of the STEAM Education initiative.
Team Building in Athlone
Earlier in 2023, the SL Controls team enjoyed urban adventure team-building activities in Athlone.
