Parker Building Supplies presented with
Training Company of the Year Award

LEADING INDUSTRY TRAINING
AWARD FOR PARKERS

For the fifth time in seven years Parker Building Supplies have won an honour at the Builders Merchants industry awards in central London. The Builders Merchants News Awards is the only industry-wide event dedicated to celebrating the very best examples of merchanting and manufacturing success across the UK and this year we are delighted to have won Training Initiative of the Year.

This award acknowledges the achievements of a merchant business in developing the knowledge-base of its staff, including the benefits this has brought to the business. Nominations were required to include objectives for providing the training; the learning outcomes set for the candidates; how the training was carried out; candidates’ achievements, and the benefits the training initiative has had on the merchant’s business.

At Parkers we are passionate about investment in our staff training, and firmly believe in the ethos of transforming business performance by having the right and qualified people in the right place. We offer a multitude of training courses linked with our trade association where they offer an apprenticeship all the way through to a Master's degree in merchanting. New staff members all receive BMF Apprenticeship training and are enrolled as student members of the Institute of Builders Merchants. Many go on to attain the Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Customer Service (QCF).

We are proud to have received this award which justifies our ongoing commitment to our employees and we thank them for all their hard work and commitment.
