Bayleaf recognises that the success of the business is dependent upon the knowledge, skills and abilities of its workforce.
We further recognise that the changing environment in which we operate demands that this knowledge needs to be consistently updated and that skills and abilities need to be continually developed.
“Bayleaf know that talent is essential for our continued success and growth. Our policy is to attract, develop and retain the right mix of talented individuals in careers they want to have, supported by training and development which continually strives to develop them as employees and improve our business standards and commercial performance.”
We ask our employees to commit to continuous learning throughout their employment. Managers must accept their responsibility for the training and development of employees. The company is committed to providing a high-quality service to our customers, and staff training forms a part of this.
We recognise our legal obligation for training with respect to the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and other legislation, regulatory and code of practice that may be relevant. We support this commitment by:
- Providing induction training for all new employees;
- Providing job specific training including health and safety information for all new and existing employees who are changing job disciplines within the company;
- Monitoring individual performance and on-going training requirements as part of the company appraisal programme, through communication with each employee;
- Providing development opportunities for all employees through a blend of training options; formal training courses, e-learning, WebEx’s, coaching, toolbox talks and service updates etc.
- Maintaining and monitoring individual training requirements and objectives on an annual basis, or when necessary.
- Providing adequate financial and physical resources to enable statutory requirements and company training objectives to be met.
