BJB supporting Humber LEP Skills Pledge

Investment in employee training and skills is a top priority for BJB Lift Trucks. The Grimsby-based materials handling equipment specialist encourages its workforce to put forward suggestions for training or skills enhancement courses they would like to undertake. The significant investments made by BJB Lift Trucks have twice been recognised by the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce when BJB won the coveted “Excellence in Training” award in 2011 and 2013.

Director Peter Harvey explained, “Many of our staff are customer-facing and often required to work all over the country servicing the needs of our widespread customer base. It is therefore essential that they are trained to the highest possible standards and have the appropriate skills set for their job role. Showing our support for the Humber LEP Skills Pledge is very important for us a business as we not only place workforce skills and apprenticeships high on our own agenda, but through our commercial and funded training divisions, we enable a lot of our clients to meet their own requirements.”

BJB Lift Trucks continues to experience sustainable growth which has seen the workforce expand by 25% in recent months so training and skills enhancement will remain a top priority! For more information about the Humber LEP Skills Pledge visit www.humberlep.org/skillspledge
