Maintenance specialist McFT is one of just 40 UK businesses to have been awarded a Princess Royal Training Award this year.
The Princess Royal Training Award is an honour for UK employers that have created lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to business performance. Delivered by City & Guilds Group, the awards will culminate at a prestigious awards ceremony at St James’s Palace on Thursday 2 November 2017.
McFT’s CEO Chris Craggs commented: “This is vindication not just for this year’s efforts but for a long-term, sustained and focused interest in our people. I’m so proud of all of them, from our engineers through our placement students to the solid core of the company – and especially the HR team, trainers and coaches who develop our teams. It’s just great to get such prestigious recognition in this august company.”
Pat Stringfellow MBE, chair of the Princess Royal Training Awards Commission and City and Guilds of London Institute Councillor said: “I would like to congratulate all the successful applicants for the Princess Royal Training Awards 2017. In this second year of the Awards we have seen an increasing focus on the quality of evidence presented supporting the impact and effectiveness of training across a wide range of sectors and organisations. It is evident from the Awards that organisations across the UK recognise the key role that training and staff development play in achieving success.”
Furthermore, McFT was recently been shortlisted in three categories for the Maidenhead & Windsor Business Awards: CSR, Apprenticeship and Business of the Year, as well as in two categories in the Premises and Facilities Management Awards for ‘Achievement in Apprenticeship and Skills’ and ‘Partners in Facilities Technology’ with the University of Bath.
