During the height of the recession in 2009, Dailycer UK saw vocational training as a way to encourage staff retention and upskill their current work force.
Over the next four years more than 250 members of staff trained in 11 different vocational qualifications, these are based on Proficiency in Food Industry Skills, Food Manufacture, Warehouse and Storage, IT, Business Administration and Engineering. A fully-supported training room at the business, with 24-hour access, has helped Dailycer retain and develop its highly-skilled workforce.
“We needed to use vocational qualifications to maintain our desire to be an ‘employer of choice’. We worked with Dailycer trainers and Coleg Cambria to trial the programmes and then celebrated the achievements, lifting morale and self-esteem. This encouraged others to learn new skills and boosted confidence.” Jo Butterworth, Human Resources Manager
