CMB Engineering has been named as a leader in people management practice globally, having won Apprentice Employer of the year for an organisation of its size at the Investors in People Awards.
The Awards celebrate the best people management practices amongst Investors in People accredited businesses and this year winners were announced at a spectacular awards ceremony and dinner at The Roundhouse, Camden, on 28 November 2018.
Hosted by comedian Russell Kane with winners announced by the voice of Strictly Come Dancing, Alan Dedicoat, this year’s awards were an opportunity for organisations from Investors in People’s international community to gather and celebrate the very best in people management globally
The Apprentice Employer of the Year category celebrates organisations who provide fantastic opportunities for apprentices in their organisation to learn, develop and progress. They understand that the apprentices of today have the potential to be the business leaders of tomorrow.
This has become another successful achievement for CMB Engineering with Investors In People, having recently achieved Investors In People Gold in March 2018. The success of the achieving the Gold Award is what motivated and drove CMB to apply for the Apprentice Employer of the Year category for this years Investors In People’s Awards.
Collecting the Award on CMB Engineering’s behalf was our own Mike Borley (Office Manager) and Jack Henry (4th & Final Year Apprentice).
On winning this category, Mike Borley said: “It is an honour for CMB Engineering, as a Company, to be recognised as ‘Apprentice Employer of the Year’ by Investors In People. This was a clear indication of the hard effort and dedication the Team has invested in the Business with our ‘Train & Retain’ ethos in developing and supporting Apprentices careers in Building Services Engineering.”
Steve Borley, Group Managing Director of CMB Engineering said: “I am thrilled CMB Engineering has won this prestigious national award for something we do naturally. We recognised from the outset that a ‘Train & Retain’ ethos would be the cornerstone with which to build the company upon. Supporting young people through Apprenticeships and inhouse placements would help to develop a career in departments supporting a Building Services Engineering company. This has certainly proved to be a continued success. I wish to thank all our Apprentices and trainees for their continued hard work and would encourage them to keep pushing the boundaries in thriving industry”. #livethedream
