Quality management experts G&P has shown its commitment to future talent within its business as an impressive number of 25 employees are now enrolled on a prestigious leadership course.
The first batch of 15 employees, who enrolled on the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) course last year, have just been joined by a further 10 co-workers who will undergo 18 months of training, including workshops and one-to-one meetings with a dedicated training advisor.
Staff taking part in the ILM Level 3 training, which is aimed at aspiring professionals taking their first step into line management and also some with experience of managing a team, come from a variety of roles within G&P, including admin team leaders and a range of operational positions.
Demonstrating its commitment to its staff, G&P, a winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2016, will provide support via Performance through People, a quality training provider based in the Midlands.
Julian Dawes, UK Managing Director at G&P, said: “People are at the heart of G&P which is why we are fully committed to providing the very best on-the-job training to our employees.
“We strive to be an employer of choice and it is tremendously encouraging to see that 25 staff from a variety of job roles within G&P have taken the opportunity to develop their skills and take their first steps towards being the leaders of the future.”
G&P, with offices at Fort Dunlop, provides quality management services to the automotive and aerospace industries. Last year alone it helped its clients reduce their levels of waste by more than £1.4bn, while in 2016 G&P’s teams inspected more than 116 million parts and identified more than 25 million that did not meet the relevant quality standards and specifications.
Shaun Kelly, a supervisor at G&P who has just enrolled, said: “The ILM course is a great way to progress within the business and G&P actively encourage their staff to apply if it is to their benefit. I cannot wait to get started.”
The variety of job roles within G&P is vast, from inspectors to engineers and a wide variety of office-based positions.
