Babington is proud to announce we won the top training provider title for the East Midlands at last weeks ‘Times Best Companies Awards’ in London. We also made the top 3 training providers overall – a brilliant achievement along with falling into the ‘Best 100 Companies to Work For’ category. The lists have been published since 2001 and hundreds of organisations take part each year. The awards celebrate the ‘best of the best’ in various categories and are a sought-after award for companies.
Carole Carson, CEO of Babington said: “Winning the Times award and being recognised as not only the best provider in the East Midlands but third overall is another significant step in our journey to be ‘Simply the Best’.”
The award win follows Babington being awarded Best Companies accreditation for the fifth consecutive year, reconfirming continuous immense levels of dedication and engagement from employees within the organisation. Best Companies is widely recognised as the most academically rigorous measure of work placement engagement and is based on data rather than opinion or theory. Babington has not only continued to maintain a 1 Star rating as a ‘Very Good Company’ but increased their overall score.
Carole continued: “We want to ensure Babington continues to be a fantastic place to work— it is a wonderful endorsement and reward for all the hard work and dedication of our colleagues nationwide. Awards such as this ensure we attract the very best calibre of new recruits, that in return deliver the highest possible levels for our learners, employers and partners.”
Accreditation tells your clients, partners, investors and employees that your organisation understands the importance of workplace engagement and genuinely values its people. Babington is just one of 190 companies in the UK to gain 1 Star accreditation this year.
Babington is passionate about demonstrating the significance of workplace engagement and provide guidance and support to help others achieve it too. A prime example of this, is Babington’s leadership and management programmes from the Chartered Management Institute, helping staff develop engaging leadership strategies which contribute towards high team performance.
