The company was also highly commended in the Innovative Employer of the Year category (medium/large organisation) aimed at organisations able to demonstrate innovative approaches to meeting the needs of tomorrow’s workforce within their organisation, at a time when the current economic climate, despite emerging from recession, continues to bring considerable new challenges.

"We were delighted to get recognition in these awards," said Acheson & Glover’s HR Manager Ashleigh Acton.

"Acheson & Glover is a family business with 50 years experience and staff training and development has always been at the core of our operation."
