Summary Are you excelling in staff development? This is your opportunity to be recognised as such.

Nominating for the 2018 SA Training Awards was an experience that SMS Geotechnical—winner of the Small Employer of the Year category 2018 - would recommend to other businesses excelling in staff development.

Business Development and Training Manager Mick Sheppard says for businesses operating in a niche market, employee training is a vital step in building a future workforce.

“We applied for the Awards because we saw ourselves going over and above the expectation for training,” he said.

“We believe that having a well-trained group of staff improves the entire industry, including the experience for our clients. “Our retention rate is very good, and I think in part it’s because of our focus on developing skills." 

“We are very proud of our business and our focus on staff training—winning a SA Training Award was a way for us to promote the work that we’re doing.”

Is your business getting the recognition it deserves for dedication to developing the skills of your workforce?

Nominations for the 2019 SA Training Awards are open until 8 April.
