Rental awards to recognise talent and training

20 December 2022

The European Rental Awards 2023 will feature a new focus on people and skills; in both the Sustainability Committee award - for the Best Initiative in People, and the Technical Committee award - for rental-specific training materials.

ERA said it was calling for equipment rental companies and rental associations to showcase “rental projects or initiatives or campaigns for an outstanding effort made to attract, recruit and retain talent in the equipment rental industry,” by entering the Sustainability Committee Award for the Best Initiative in People by 24 February 2023.

“The Best Initiative in People Award will go to a single project or initiative within a rental company or rental association. Initiatives might include recruitment campaigns, training programmes, inclusion strategies, etc. The award will be assessed by the members of the ERA Sustainability Committee.”

Meanwhile, the ERA Technical Committee award is again targeted at equipment OEMs and will highlight training materials specially adapted for the rental industry.

For the first time, this award will now require OEMs to submit an entry form. The award will be assessed by the rental companies members of the ERA Technical Committee.

Entries can be submitted in free format or using the standard entry form, in English or the national language of the proposing company.

Submissions can come from any company in Europe regardless of their ERA membership. Entries from small and medium size enterprises are encouraged.
