A small training team of just four people beat off
competition from the likes of Abbey National, GNER and Sheffield City Council
to win the TD2001 Award
The award, organised by Training Magazine and sponsored by
Raytheon Professional Services, attracted more than 40 entries.
The trophy was awarded at a ceremony at the Training
Solutions Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
Judge, Andrew Forrest, who is director of learning at the
Industrial Society, said the panel had been impressed by the volume of learning
generated by the team, and said they had undoubtedly contributed to Lyreco’s
"spectacular and steady" growth over the past 10 years.
Over the past three years, 30 per cent of the company’s
staff have achieved qualifications. All main job roles have development paths
mapped and training is integrated into all departments.
The runners-up were financial services company Abbey
National and Sheffield City Council.
The judges also commended Chubb Insurance Services, rail
operator GNER, telecoms company One2One and Prism.
