Global Materials Company Wins Prestigious Business Award
Morgan, which employs over 9,000 people worldwide and has multiple sites in the Midlands, including Coventry, Stourport and Rugby, won the Developing People Award, given to the manufacturer that has done the most to build skills, harness talent and develop its employees. Throughout Europe the company runs a structured development programme for Graduates, designed to develop them into future leaders and provide key talent for the business. The company was selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts and academics and was up against stiff competition from a range of impressive businesses, small and large, from across the region.
With the regional title now under its belt, Morgan Advanced Materials will now go on to compete for the national title at an awards gala dinner in London in January next year.
Jane Edmondson, Graduate Programme Manager Europe, at Morgan Advanced Materials, says: “This award is down to our team’s hard work and dedication, and we are delighted to have won. Not only does it demonstrate the valuable contribution made by local manufacturers like ourselves, but it also puts us on the map as a modern and innovative company. This is great news for us to share with all our staff, customers and suppliers.
“It’s fantastic to get this far and now we’re all looking forward to the national finals in January to see how we measure up against other leading manufacturers from across the UK.”
Carl D’Ammassa, Group Managing Director - Business Finance at Aldermore, says: “Businesses are aware that fostering and developing employees’ skills is essential to their future success and competitiveness - and manufacturers are leading the way. This award is justly deserved and Morgan Advanced Materials should be applauded for their efforts. We wish them the best of luck for the national finals.”
