Working with RedR rewards everyone

Letters

As mentioned in 'Your career' (NCE July 13), one of the key issues for an employee is whether an employer takes an interest in their personal and professional development.

Undertaking an assignment with RedR - Engineers for Disaster Relief - enables an employee to make a practical humanitarian contribution, thus making them feel more satisfied and motivated.

But our research has also shown that there can also be some secondary benefits for the employer. When in the field, RedR members often find themselves working in unfamiliar situations, taking on more responsibility than they have in their usual job. They also develop teamworking, leadership, management and problem solving skills, of great benefit to their employee on return from assignment.
