On Thursday we had the visit to Clarkson Evans looking at their award winning apprenticeship scheme. They have grown hugely since 2009 and now employ over 754 staff and won many, many awards but the most recent being for their apprenticeship scheme.
They currently train over 200 apprentices throughout the company with a very hi retention level. Lindsey Young their HR & Training Director talked about the history of the company, the benefits of training internally, their growth strategy and challenges for the future.
With a turnover in excess of 45 million they are a great example of how a family business can thrive under great management and go from strength to strength. We had a packed room and C2S members took great value from this visit.
Very interesting story today glad I came'
