Better Late Than Never

I thought I'd share a bit news from Powergen with you all today, you might find it of value, you might not, either way someone is bound to benefit from me employing such tactics.

E.ON’s undergraduates make a splash in Derbyshire

A group of 14 eager E.ON Power Academy scholars had a hands-on induction when they braved the pouring rain to carry out a number of challenges at Kedleston Hall in Derby.

The team helped out staff at the National Trust site by taking on tasks which the staff didn't have the time or resources to complete themselves.

The group worked hard all day clearing hay from fields, painting fences for holiday cottages and filling sandbags in preparation for more heavy rain.

Alastair Mills, one of the willing volunteers, said: "It was a great team building event as it's nice to get out of the office and get to know each other in an informal setting.

"It makes you feel really good to know that you've made a difference by helping out in the community. We all had an enjoyable and productive day - despite the rain!"

Simon Hiley, Head Ranger at the site said: "The team got stuck in and gave it their all, and, most importantly, all of the tasks were undertaken with enthusiasm and a good sense of humour.

"We couldn't have done it all without the help of the team from E.ON, so a big thank you to everyone that helped out."

E.ON UK finds and supports volunteering opportunities which provide a rewarding challenge for employees as part of its wider community relations programme. In 2006, staff spent over 32,000 hours volunteering on projects in their local communities.

E.ON is the UK's largest integrated power and gas company, who also now own Powergen, - generating and distributing electricity, and retailing power and gas - and is part of the E.ON group, the world's largest investor-owned power and gas company. We employ around 15,000 people in the UK;
