Two Warrington firms were among the first in the country to receive royal recognition in the Princess Royal Training Awards.
Launched last year by the City & Guilds Group, the Princess Royal Training Awards – a programme which celebrates the impact of training and development on business performance.
Among the recipients were Warrington-based, Fujitsu and Home Instead.
Fujitsu was awarded for its Distinguished Engineer Scheme which created cross-disciplinary networks which led to enhanced performance and a reduction in staff turnover.
Home Instead was awarded for addressing a need of dementia carers. As well as providing dementia training to staff, the organisation started to offer shorter courses to clients’ families and community groups which resulted in business growth and increased client satisfaction.
These were just two example of how learning and development has improved business performance – and there are many more which are going unrecognised.
