Morgan Advanced Materials, the world leader in design and manufacturing of innovative materials solutions, has been named runner-up in the Investing in Skills category at this year’s EEF Future Manufacturing Awards having already won the regional prize.
The champions’ champion event, held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, pitted the various regional winners against each other to define one national champion in a number of categories.
Morgan was named runner-up for the Investing in Skills award, sponsored by JAM Recruitment, for its well-planned and executed development programme for both mentors and trainees. The programme focused on offering clear individual development, supported by a process to track their progress and also the programme as a whole. The judges were impressed with this structured programme that was delivered across multiple levels of the business with significant results for all.
Becky Cund, UK HR Manager at Morgan Advanced Materials, said: “To be recognised on a national stage like this is a great accomplishment for Morgan Advanced Materials and testament to the success of our Graduate and Placement schemes. The HR department received superb support from managers and employees from around the business, without their help we would not be celebrating this achievement.”
Jim Davidson, Region Director for the South East at EEF, said: “The EEF Future Manufacturing Awards showcases the best of British innovation and excellence, and mark our industry’s importance, competitiveness and ability to adapt and thrive. We extend our congratulations to Morgan Advanced Materials for its success in this award.”
The awards recognise excellence in enterprise, innovation, environmental performance, exporting, skills development and health and safety amongst UK manufacturers, and also, outstanding apprentices.
