• Brother UK secures Royal approval for staff training and development

        • Brother UK has been commended by Princess Anne for its excellence in employee training and development, picking up a Princess Royal Training Award.

          The award honours employers in the UK that have created outstanding training and skills development programmes, resulting in exceptional commercial benefits for the business.

          Brother UK was praised specifically for developing training which is tailored to meet the needs of individual employees, as well as ensuring staff are equipped with the skills required to be successful in the technology industry.

          The judges were also impressed with Brother’s incentive-based approach which helps to motivate employees, reduce absenteeism and build succession planning in the business.

          Louise Marshall, Infrastructure and Shared Services Director at Brother UK said, “we believe that learning and development is key to ensuring long-term competitiveness which is why we place so much emphasis on staff training. This award win comes not long after the business was honoured with the Investors in People (IIP) Platinum status - the most prestigious accolade in people management - last year.

          “Accolades such as these help us to attract, retain and develop the very best talent in the sector. This means we can offer our partners innovative, market-leading solutions, as well as an inspired and motivated team to work alongside.”

          The Princess Royal Training Awards are delivered by the City & Guilds Group. This year, 116 applicants were assessed against three Hallmarks of Excellence: training is integral to business performance; the programme is delivered efficiently and effectively; training has an impact on the success of the organisation and its people. Brother UK was among 40 organisations recognised this year.

          Chris Jones, Group Chief Executive of the City & Guilds Group added, “employers of all sizes across the UK are seeing real and tangible benefits of training and developing their people. The Princess Royal Training Awards provide both recognition and the opportunity to share best practice and its impact. I congratulate Brother UK who presented their evidence and achieved the standard required by the Award in 2017.  They are worthy recipients of this prestigious and rigorous royal award and we are delighted to be able to deliver it through the City & Guilds Group.”

          Representatives from Brother UK will collect the award on 2nd November at a ceremony at St James’s Palace.
