Ballycastle based training organisation BCW Training Ltd, which employs 12 people, is celebrating additional accreditation at Gold, Silver and Bronze levels against the prestigious Investors in People (IiP) framework.
Employment and Learning Minister Dr Stephen Farry offered his congratulations to the organisations receiving their awards at a celebration event held in Belfast Castle.
Minister Farry said: “This is a special occasion as it celebrates Northern Ireland’s businesses going above and beyond excellence, through Investors in People. We know that organisations that invest in their people are much more likely to survive the challenging economic climate and times of change.
“It is commendable that those organisations achieving additional IiP accreditation, at Gold, Silver and Bronze levels, have demonstrated a clear commitment to continuing to invest in their people - and are indeed seeing the business benefits of doing so.”
“The only thing that differentiates an organisation is its people.
“Businesses are facing the same challenges. What gives your business the edge is your people. Your people, their skills, and how you manage them, is what will transform your business performance.”
Minister Farry concluded: “If you develop the skills of your employees, success will ultimately follow. This has been proven, through working with Investors in People, time and time again, and its relevance is as important as ever.”
The Department for Employment and Learning recently launched a new ‘Skills to Succeed’ campaign aimed at highlighting the importance of skills and qualifications for individuals, employers and the economy.
BCW in Ballycastle attended the awards ceremony in Belfast Castle last Wednesday.
