training & development within the Acorn Group
At Acorn we believe that investing in our employees is investing in our future.
That is why each employee receives regular performance reviews in which individual development and training needs are identified. We understand that not everyone is the same and that people have different aspirations, whether you're sales driven and thrive on targets, you want to manage your own branch and people, or you're keen to provide support to a network of branches across the UK from our Head Office, we can tailor a development plan specifically for you.
We really do help our employees to shape their futures but don’t just take our word for it. Our commitment to developing people has been recognised by Investors in People (IIP) whose accreditation we retained in 2012. In their report, the IIP Assessor said:
“Acorn has undertaken much positive work to develop people related practices and procedures that support the achievement of the above; introduction of an updated appraisal system, competency framework, management academy, training procedures etc. All of the aforementioned demonstrate that Acorn Group uses good practice associated with the Investors in People Standard to continually improve the way the business operates.”
As part of our internal training & development program, we have just introduced a new Management Academy that already proves to be successful: “Whilst in its early stages of implementation the Management Academy is seen as a genuine means to develop not only existing managers but as a method to support those people who demonstrate talent to move on and, therefore, supporting succession planning.”
We believe that there’s never been a better time to join the Acorn Group and be part of an exciting future. Have a look at our latest vacancies or contact us now.
