Continuing to climb the league tables, Worcestershire has once again put itself on the map. In most recent years, the county where TRS is based have been first in terms of higher level workforce skills growth, 2nd for growth in productivity and 3rd for growth in prosperity. TRS are very proud to have contributed to these statistics…
Back in 2013/14, TRS engaged in the apprenticeship scheme after noting the gap within the insurance industry in technology and the future workforce. Since then, TRS have focussed it’s efforts on offering more apprenticeship programmes across a range of subjects and supporting the professional development of those already employed within the company. This has not only improved staff retention but has enabled employees to be promoted into managerial positions.
With a huge investment in the improvement of services and products in previous years, the company have increased it’s share of the market with current partners and attracting new clients. Predictions into the new year only shows this rising alongside staff intake tripling.
The sixth annual Worcestershire LEP Conference at Chateau Impney showed many other local businesses sharing the same successes. This networking event was a fantastic opportunity to hear first hand how Worcestershire is developing into a creative and dynamic county from speakers of the LEP, Rt. Hon. Sajid Javid MP and managers from the Department of International Trade. TRS were featured on Worcestershires’ Vision after their achievements with apprenticeships and work placements.
The event closed with a small award ceremony, celebrating the outstanding contributions of individuals to the county. TRS congratulate all of the winners and look forward to seeing everyone next year!
