Since 2014 they have been working with Dale Carnegie to nurture and develop the talent within their organisation.
We live in an era of technological advancement that has never been seen before, and this resulted in Brother UK attracting a younger age demographic . In order to develop and retain this this key talent across the whole business, they wanted to develop a continued culture of learning that would engage their people and create a vibrant, thriving company culture.
The long-term aim of this vision was to allow internal talent to transition from front-line roles to management positions.
Brother UK’s commitment to this transformation in their organisation and in their team has meant that every employee has attended a Growth Mind-Set Workshop, as well as training in How to Be Resilientin Changing Times. In addition to this, when developing specific talent they have utilised Dale Carnegie’s full catalogue of open programmes, as tactical development of future leaders.
Their vision to be an employer of choice has certainly paid off. In 2019 they became the first UK medium sized employer to be awarded the Investors in People Platinum Award. Other accolades in the last 12 months include winning a second Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development and a second Princess Royal Training Award.
Managing Director, Phil Jones, MBE, said, “Our position as a leading technology solutions provider is intrinsically linked to our status as a top employer, and the innovative approaches we take to both products and people. We know that it’s working because our employees stay with us on average for an industry-leading 13 years, which means there’s a huge amount of knowledge, expertise and loyalty within our workforce.”
