It’s our absolute pleasure to share that we are proud recipients of a Princess Royal Training Award for 2020.
Our training is undoubtedly industry leading and the improvements we’ve made over recent years have had a significant impact on both our people and our business. We were excited about sharing everything we’re doing on this front from the very start of the award application process. With so much positive information surrounding our training and the development of our people, we knew that we had a great story to tell and couldn’t wait to share it.
The hard work of everyone involved in helping us present our evidence and, more importantly, the ongoing efforts of those who help deliver our brilliant training programme, has paid off and we’re delighted to have been acknowledged in this way.
The official congratulatory letter, issued by City and Guilds on behalf of Buckingham Palace, states: ‘You have further demonstrated that investing in your people through training and skills development has delivered real and tangible impact and benefits, and it is appropriate this will now be recognised through your Award. The commitment of your organisation to the development of your employees, especially during these acutely difficult times and as we aspire to recovery post Covid-19, demonstrates that you will be well prepared to play your part in the nation’s economic recovery.’
‘We couldn’t be happier that our commitment to our people has been recognised. They are at the heart of our success as a business and we will continue to invest in them and their future with the British Engineering Services Group,’ said Hannah Mather Group HR Director.
Stewart Kay, Group CEO said, ‘I keep saying it, but I could not be prouder of our people and our business. This award is just another example of how we’re leading the way in our industry. Our training programme is integral to the success of the British Engineering Services Group and this is just another proof point that we’re doing it right. With our new training centre opening later this year, the timing of this award is perfect! Thank you to everyone involved in helping us achieve this and, more importantly, for helping make Britain and Ireland a safer place , we really do have the very best people.’
We look forward to sharing more information about our new training facility as we get closer to its official opening later this year.
