Training Initiative of the Year
Over the past year, Hargreaves’ workforce has grown from 277 to over 400. They aim to continue this rate of growth over the next three years making sure they have access to the requisite numbers of highly skilled personnel, in the face of a pronounced skills shortage forecast for the UK engineering industry means they see it as business critical to invest now. In order to be in the best position to approach future high profile engineering projects, they need to ensure that we increase our already skilled an ambitious workforce to be able to approach these demands and maintain our level of service. Hargreaves' key objective is to ensure that they nurture young talent and provide them with the opportunity for training and kinaesthetic learning. They want to emphasise succession planning and developing talent pipelines and the EYTP provides the perfect vehicle in which to achieve success. The programme was launched as part of their Right F1rst Time scheme, a multi-faceted programme designed to improve all aspects of the business from Customer Care, Learning from Experience, Communications, IT, Learning and Development, Engagement and Culture Change to EYTP.
