In the press: MP celebrates local business’ Princess Royal Training Award win

Aug 21, 2019 | 2019 awards, In the press

Antoinette Sandbach, MP for Eddisbury, is celebrating Barlows (UK) Ltd being awarded a Princess Royal Training Award.

The family-run business, based in Malpas, created a lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to the company’s overall performance.

The electrical business puts training at the heart of its strategy with 95% of its staff having undertaken an apprenticeship.

The programme is embedded and integrated in the business and led passionately from the top-down, meaning that work is carried out in ‘the Barlows way’.

There is a 97% retention rate of employees and the business has grown solidly for the past 25 years, even during recession periods.
