Developing our people
Our managers have a diverse range of qualifications and membership of professional bodies such as CIOB, ACCA, CIPD and RICS or working towards membership. We also fund and develop employee skills and knowledge through our training partnership with the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). Each year we take on many trainees who receive personal support from our Chairman, managers and Beard company mentors.
“One of the most positive aspects of this review revolved around staffs’ perception that Beard is a really good place to work. Staff remarked on the friendly, family atmosphere within the organisation. The Trainee programme is, in their words, ‘second to none’, and all trainees highlighted the exceptional support and dedication of the Chairman. The review confirmed that staff feel valued and proud to work for Beard. In comparison to many other organisations I have worked with in this industry sector, I was very impressed with the vibrant and supportive attitude within Beard. I am delighted to confirm that Beard has gained the Gold award during this Investors in People Review. “
