Brother UK has been commended for the third time by the Princess Royal Training Awards for its dedication to developing its people.
The awards recognise employers that have created outstanding training and skills development programmes, and that can prove the value of investing in learning and development to address a wide range of business needs.
Managing Director Phil Jones, said: “Learning and development is not only an ethical responsibility for leaders at every level; it’s also a commercial necessity. People are at the heart of our sustained business success and it’s fantastic that this has been recognised, once again.”
Brother used its employee engagement toolkit – a multi-device digital platform providing colleagues and their managers full access to their training and development portfolio – to demonstrate that learning and development is integral to the organisation, is designed and delivered effectively and efficiently, and has an impact on the success of the organisation and its people.
The UK business has also played a leading role in helping its global parent company, Brother Industries, to join the FTSE4Good Index – a select group of the world’s most environmentally and socially sustainable companies.
The Index measures the performance of companies demonstrating strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practice, which includes household names such as Apple, Microsoft and Johnson & Johnson.
The listing reflects the global business’s success in working to meet the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, from tackling climate change and resource depletion, to reducing environmental pollution and destruction of the ecosystem.
