Our People

Partek is a growing company, which prides itself on the technical expertise and management experience of its people, and without our people we just would not operate! Partek focuses on generating high morale among Partek employees, making work not just a place you have to come every day, but a place you want to come to!

Partek is a forward-thinking building company, committed to the continual training and development of all employees. Partek has developed a Performance Management Development Program (PMDP) which is for developing and mentoring employees to achieve goals which are set by both the employee and their direct manager.


Through the PMDP regular reviews are held with the employee and their direct manager, these reviews are set to allow both parties to discuss how things are going to make sure that the employee is receiving the necessary support in order to meet their goals. Part of the PMDP is a Development Plan, which outlines the development (training) that each employee believes they require further enhancing their skills. The development of skills and knowledge along with a dedication to constructing better spaces and better lifestyles for its clients, gives Partek employees that additional drive in ensuring that the needs of our clients are met.
