Dale Power Solutions was awarded “Best Employer 2017” at the Scarborough Business Awards on 24 November at a “007” themed event at the Scarborough Spa.
Roger Clay, Product Director, who accepted the award on behalf of Dale commented, “This is a special award for the team at Dale and we are extremely proud to have won it for the third time. We provide opportunities for a diverse range of people, which begins with our Apprenticeship Programme. We employ apprentices with no work experience, provide an opportunity to learn, support them throughout their apprenticeship and beyond with one goal, each apprentice to realise their potential.
“We believe in the right person in the right role, regardless of age or gender, and provide the support to help our apprentices to realise their potential. 33% of our apprentices are female and we work with Women in Engineering to promote engineering (considered a male career) bucking the national trend. It’s great to be recognised locally for our contribution.”
The award is presented to the employer who does “that little bit extra” for its employees, has implemented a significant innovative development in people management practices and who has shown a strong commitment to staff development and training. Dale has now won this award for a third time with previous occasions in 2014 and 2015.
Dale Power Solutions offers a diverse range of apprenticeships including Engineering, Quality, Health and Safety, IT, Accountancy, Supply Chain, Warehouse, Embedded Software and Product Management. In 2016 Dale was awarded with an inaugural Princess Royal Training Award.
