Sue wins top diversity and inclusion award

Hinkley tour guide wins a prestigious company award

One of Hinkley Point’s tour guides has won a prestigious diversity and inclusion company award.

Sue Butler, who is part of the EDF Energy visitor centre team and is based at Angel Place Shopping Centre in Bridgwater, was presented with the top award by Hinkley Point B’s Station Director, Peter Evans, at a special innovation and recognition event in Gloucester.

As well as raising awareness of disability-related issues and improving site access arrangements for those who are mobility-impaired, Sue has been extremely proactive in developing working relationships with local disability groups and arranging power station tours.

Hinkley Campus, our on-site accommodation, opened its doors to HPC workers in June. The state-of-the-art 510-bed facility is the culmination of much hard work and collaboration from our supply chain contractors.

The facility managed by HOST, a newly established business consortium of local suppliers who have come together to service the campus accommodation, is in size comparable to Europe’s second-largest hotel establishment (when Sedgemoor Campus also comes online later this year).

Her achievements include:

  • Arranging a number of Hinkley Point B power station tours for local disability groups with varying ages and needs
  • Being part of the team who introduced powered stair climbers, which have enabled mobility-impaired individuals and wheelchair users to take part in the full Hinkley Point B tour experience

 

Peter Evans, Hinkley Point B’s Station Director, congratulated Sue on her special award, and said: “Sue really deserves this recognition. The empathetic and caring way in which she deals with people is first class, and I would like to personally thank her for her efforts and for making a positive difference.”
