On the 15th of August, Quanta were honoured to be able to add another title to the trophy shelf. The Princess Royal Training Awards (delivered by the City & Guilds Group) are a seal of approval of training excellence, verified by Princess Anne. The award is seen as a benchmark of distinction and proof of training and development available to employees in an organisation.

Huge emphasis is placed on training at Quanta (2,650 hours per year to be precise!) and the introduction of three bespoke training programmes has resulted in visible commercial benefits for the company. The training programmes are known as: FastTrack to Delivery Executive, FastTrack to Sales and FastTrack to Future Leadership. They all provide structured guidance to a variety of roles within the business and are specifically developed to help achieve strategic business goals.

Being the only recruiter within the 48 companies awarded the 2018 recognition was a fantastic achievement and Quanta are extremely proud to be amongst public and private sector businesses of all sizes including: John Lewis, the RAF, RBS and GSK.

Chief of Executive of the City & Guilds Group, Chris Jones commented saying: ‘’At a time of increasing uncertainty and reduced investment into workforce development it is great to see critical business issues being addressed through impactful L&D. Through the Awards we highlight excellent examples of training that have already proved to be effective and we encourage others to build on their success.’’

Director at Quanta, David Broome said: “We are proud to receive this recognition and thank both the Princess Royal Training Awards and the City & Guilds Group for this honour. Training at Quanta is core to our business success; in 2009 we started to make significant time and cost investments in training and we are proud our investment in all our staffs futures has been recognised through our FastTrack programmes.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our two trainers, who in our opinion are the best in the recruitment industry and I also wish to thank many of our staff who sacrifice their time and make significant contributions through knowledge sharing and assisting in the delivery of our FastTrack training programmes.”
