Compass Group UK & Ireland was crowned Employer of the Year in the Retail, Hospitality & Tourism category at the BAME Apprenticeship Awards.
Organised by the BAME Apprentice Network, the BAME Apprenticeship Awards showcase the range of talent and hard work within the BAME communities. Made possible with the contribution of employers and learning providers who share these values.
Compass says the award is “testament” to the company’s “hard work in creating a workforce which represents the rich diversity of the customers and clients it serves”.
Last year, Compass signed up to the Race at Work Charter, a government initiative launched in partnership with Business in the Community (BITC), designed to foster a commitment to improving outcomes of black, Asian and minority ethnic BAME employees in the workplace across the UK.
Speaking about the win, Donna Catley, Chief People Officer at Compass Group UK & Ireland commented: “Winning this award is fantastic recognition of our apprenticeship team, and how they help change lives, along with the support of our great partners and training providers. We have a D&I strategy in place to ensure everyone in the business can be themselves at work and have an equal opportunity to progress and follow their career path.”
Jonathan Foot, Head of Apprenticeships and Early Careers at Compass Group UK & Ireland added: “We are honoured to receive this award and are immensely proud to see the growth of our diverse apprentice community acknowledged with this amazing accolade. It has been especially rewarding to watch our apprentices progress and develop throughout the pandemic, whilst achieving their qualifications.”
“Customer engagement” has become a buzzword in the facilities management sector. Typically, it’s talked about as something radical and transformative – which can make it sound expensive, intimidating and overwhelming.
While customer engagement can be transformative for service providers, it isn’t out of reach. It’s the surprisingly simple secret ingredient in your recipe for standing out, streamlining operations and satisfying everyone involved.
