We've won an Award for Learning and Development

We've just won the John Sainsbury Award for Learning and Development.

We've just the John Sainsbury Award for Learning and Development, a national food industry award for our Breakthrough leadership programme. We were one of thirteen recipients of the IGD Food Industry Awards which were announced this week in London. The awards recognise achievements of companies in food manufacturing, farming, retail, distribution, wholesaling and foodservice. Our Breakthrough leadership programme was developed in partnership with KBA Solutions and equips key managers with the confidence and skills to lead the business through the acceleration of its turnaround and the programme forms a significant part of its leadership and development training. The Awards were presented by Justin King, Chief Executive of J Sainsbury, who said: “Premier Foods Breakthrough leadership programme is using highly robust methods and content to prepare leaders for bigger roles, to build effective cross functional teams, and to shift the company from being trading-driven to be marketing-led.” Joanne Denney-Finch, chief executive, IGD, commented: “The IGD Food Industry Awards recognise the best-in-class and demonstrate some of the most exciting new thinking in our sector. I would like to extend my personal congratulations to Premier Foods for their outstanding learning and development programme.”
