Ten UK businesses given best staff training accolade


From a curry-house to a warship supplier, ten of Britain’s top staff training programmes have been recognised today by the Department for Business, CBI, TUC and Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS).

The list has been drawn up as part of a new good-practice guide to help employers work to improve staff skills and inspire other companies to invest in similar training practices.

Based on specially commissioned research from Leeds University Business School, the guide covers ten successful models of training dialogue that have increased the participation and upskilling of each workforce.

Employment Relations Minister Pat McFadden said: "These businesses have been successful in genuinely inspiring workers to take up training opportunities and boost their skills. Effective training programs are the way forward to help boost British productivity, improve workforce skills and enhance our competitive position on the world stage."

Skills Minister David Lammy added: "Effective dialogue over skills is a win-win for employers and staff, leading to a more committed and innovative workforce, enhanced productivity, and ultimately a stronger economy and fairer society."

The ten organisations highlighted in the publication as 'exemplars of good practice' are:

Café Spice Namaste in London
Kings Waterfront, Liverpool in the North West
Escrick Park Estate in Yorkshire and Humberside
Merseytravel in the North West
Hydrasun in Aberdeen
Newcastle City Council in the North East
The Ogilvy Group in London
Rolls Royce in Scotland
Scottish Provident International Life Assurance in the Isle of Man
VT Shipbuilding in the South West
