And the winner is …. Bournville PropertyCare (BPS)! Yes, BPS has walked away with yet another accolade for its leadership and people development, this time “The Celebrating Construction” award for leadership and people development.
The Celebrating Construction Awards recognises the West Midlands most inspiring construction projects and the organisations and people that play a vital role in project delivery.
BPS currently employs 14 Apprentices as part of its 50-strong workforce. This award will continue to shine a light on the innovative approach that the Trust has adopted in developing and training new talent.
Over recent years, BPS has encouraged its existing team to learn new trades and skills to support the development of a multi-skilled workforce. Employees are actively encouraged to pick up new trades including plastering and brick work, helping to spread knowledge and resource.
Commenting on their victory, Steve Rose, Head of Contracting Services said; “Investing so heavily in our apprentices clearly works. We have proven generation after generation that apprenticeships ensure that the very best methods and techniques are perpetuated between generations not lost into the generational ether.”
The prestigious event took place on Friday 25th April at the ICC in Birmingham was co-hosted by Acivico Limited, the Chartered Institute of Building’s (CIOB) West Midlands branch and the Built Environment Hub.
BPS will now be entered into the national awards. Well done to BPS, let’s hope they can walk away with the national award in November.
