Motorhome dealer, Erwin Hymer Centre Travelworld, inspires apprentices
Stafford-based motorhome dealer, Erwin Hymer Centre Travelworld, recently held a full training day session with motivational speakers to inspire the company's nine apprentices working towards a career in the motorhome industry.
Erwin Hymer Centre Travelworld, which employs 81 members of staff, continually invests in training and people development, with 60 per cent of its employees on an NVQ course in areas such as business administration, IT, parts and warehousing, sales and customer services, management training and business improvement techniques training.
Last year, the luxury motorhome specialists held an International Women’s Day session to provide a forum for female staff to express their specific needs at work, and also hosted a Men’s Day directed on men’s health issues, in acknowledgement of International Men’s Day last November.
Ross Edwards, managing director of Erwin Hymer Centre, said: “We are a multi-disciplined business, relying on a workforce with a huge diversity of skills, and as a result, we are heavily invested and passionate about all the training programmes we offer.
"As well as essential training that ensures our compliance with safety and industry standards, we also value people-focussed training which helps make sure our employees are as comfortable and confident as possible in the working environment we provide.”
The company also has reason to celebrate, having been nominated for an award in the Training Excellence category at the Stoke Sentinel Business Awards 2020, with winners announced at the end of March.
