Elior Integrated Services has been crowned Large Business Apprentice Employer of the Year at the Wiltshire Apprenticeship Awards in recognition of its commitment to staff training and helping employees achieve their full potential.

 

At the ceremony Elior was praised for the fact that it “does not just offer a job, but a career - encouraging its employees to achieve above and beyond their potential.”

 

Feedback from the organisers, Wiltshire Enterprise, also highlighted that Elior employees are made to feel “confident and supported at all times”.

 

Managing Director of Elior EIS, John McEwen, who accepted the award on behalf of the company said: “This statement reflects our values and ideals within Elior and we will continue to engage positively and proactively with local colleges and training providers to secure the best training. In doing so we will provide the opportunity for all staff to reach their maximum potential.

 

“Apprenticeships make a significant and positive contribution to Elior and its customers. They play an enormous part in providing those skills we need to build a successful business by helping get young people into work, boosting productivity and improving competitiveness. I hope the success stories of those apprentices receiving their awards encourage many more organisations and individuals to find out more about apprenticeships”.

 

The Awards, which were run by Wiltshire Enterprise, recognise the top apprentices from Wiltshire College as well as the most proactive employers in the area.

 

As well as the company award, Elior employee Richard Brown, a chef at Westbury RCB, was awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award thanks to the drive, ambition and technical skills shown over his three-year hospitality/professional cookery level 3 training.
