WE’RE LOOKING FOR CLEAR EVIDENCE OF PROGRESS

The NatWest Commercial Banking team in Wiltshire aims to provide a combination of first class proactive banking alongside market leading customer service.

NATWEST: Neil Aldam

Through the blending of decades of experience with continuous improvement and team development, we take great pride in understanding our customers’ goals and needs so that we can provide them with the most appropriate options, be it funding, day-to-day banking, market insight or networks.

It is this experience and attitude for supporting our customers and the wider local market place which we take into the Medium Sized Business category for the Wiltshire Business of the Year awards as it allows us to judge with clarity our entrants on those key areas that make the difference: their people, plan, performance and projects.

It should be noted that being good in one area will not be enough to be short-listed. Demonstration of a cohesive company with clear goals, actions to achieve those goals, and clear evidence of progress is a must. I look forward with a huge amount of interest to seeing who will put their hats into the ring for 2019 and know already how much they and my team will enjoy the journey.

BESPOKE TRAINING SERVICE AND HR4 BUSINESS: Anne Messer and Lorraine Stevens

As Wiltshire business owners, we are once again delighted to be invited to judge the 25th Year Anniversary, Wiltshire Business Awards 2019.

Although we run separate businesses in our own right, Bespoke Training Services and HR4 Business have synergies and combined skill sets which, we believe, make us the perfect fit to judge the category of Learning and Development Employer of the Year.

We support businesses by tailoring our services to meet their needs in HR support, recruitment and learning and development. We know, and our clients understand, that by investing in learning and development, they will see a return on their investment with increased business growth, employee satisfaction and employee retention.

We would strongly encourage businesses that offer great support and development for their staff to enter these awards. We will be looking for:

• A consistent and structured approach to learning and development whether through Apprenticeships, Graduate Programmes, Management Programmes or other forms of people development;
• Demonstration of a regular investment in development for all staff;
• Communication channels between management and staff; • Measured key performance indicators.

So come along to this year’s Wiltshire Business Awards launch and meet us. There are so many benefits to just taking part.
