Worcestershire Business, AKW, a leading provider of bathroom accessibility solutions, is pleased to announce that its management team has been awarded the Bronze Excellence Mark by Skills Builder Partnership. This award is given to organisations that demonstrate best practice in embedding essential skills training within recruitment, staff development and/or outreach.
AKW’s managers undertook the training to enhance the company’s recruitment processes. The result is a much clearer understanding amongst interviewers of what essential skills – such as problem-solving, leadership and teamwork – they seek in interviewees. This provides an environment for improved recruitment processes, as more appropriately skilled people join the organisation. It also means that employees with the right skills are in a position to deliver an improved customer experience, whether that is in the customer services team, or designing a new product in the engineering and product management team.
Charlotte Treverton-Jones, AKW HR Business Partner, comments: “Working with Skills Builder Partnership has brought clarity to our recruitment systems. Candidates understand the essential skills requirements to join our organisation and are given guidance in how to demonstrate this at the interview. We would encourage other companies to undertake and achieve the Excellence Mark, as a way of demonstrating a fair, well-structured, and positive recruitment process for candidates.”
