Zenith has won recognition from HRH Princess Royal for putting its employees first.
Zenith joins major UK businesses including RBS, Barclays, and Waitrose in being commended for their commitment to training and skills development.
The Princess Royal Training Award from the City & Guilds Group recognises businesses that create a lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to business performance.
The awards will be presented in a ceremony at St James’s Palace this autumn.
Commenting on the achievement Marisa Waddington, HR director at Zenith, said: “Our people are essential to the success of Zenith and delivering the customer centred culture that fuels our growth. It is great to join such highly-respected companies and receive this recognition.”
The Princess Royal Training Awards were delivered for the first-time last year by the City & Guilds Group. Each applicant was assessed against three Hallmarks of Excellence by the Princess Royal Training Awards Commission, which comprised of HRH The Princess Royal and seven leading figures in the business and training community.
Commenting on this year’s recipients, Chris Jones, Chief Executive of the City & Guilds Group said: ‘From household brands to leading charities, employers of all sizes across the UK are seeing real and tangible benefits of training and developing their people. The Princess Royal Training Awards provide both recognition and the opportunity to share best practice and its impact. I congratulate the 40 successful organisations who presented their evidence and achieved the standard required by the Award in 2017. They are worthy recipients of this prestigious and rigorous royal award, and we are delighted to be able to deliver it through the City & Guilds Group.’
