Best Apprenticeship Strategy accolade awarded to Greene King

The 14th annual Springboard Awards for Excellence took place at the Novotel London West last week. Hundreds of the hospitality industry’s finest turned out to celebrate the individuals, organisations and initiatives that have raised the profile of the sector.

Six of Lifetime Training’s hospitality clients were in attendance, including Côte, Bourne Leisure, Marston’s, Compass, Greene King, and PizzaExpress. Greene King was shortlisted for, and won, ‘Best Apprenticeship Strategy’. Its popular apprenticeships programme has saved on recruitment, improved customer satisfaction and encouraged apprentices to progress their careers and go on to management qualifications within Greene King.

“We are really pleased to have been recognised by our industry at the Springboard Awards for Excellence. Apprenticeships are something we are really passionate about and our scheme has proven a real success for us. We want to support our team members’ career paths and their progression within the company, and we are proud that our apprenticeship programme supports us to achieve these goals.”

Julie Proctor, account director at Lifetime Training, said:

“Greene King is a leading hospitality employer and highly deserving of this win. The team demonstrates an ongoing commitment to developing its workforce through apprenticeships and both sets and exceeds challenging targets in order to achieve this. We are honoured to be working with such an ambitious and passionate people business and look forward to continuing our innovative partnership.”
