LBS Builders Merchants, an independent builders' merchants with 35 outlets across South Wales, has seen its commitment to training rewarded with the BMF Training Company of the Year award from the BMF last month.
LBS is a customer of Simon Acres Group, accessing their online training during the pandemic.
Raymond Laidlaw, pictured, learning and development manager, said: “We did not want to curtail our training programme during lockdown, so shifted our focus from face to face, to online. We have found the online training from Simon Acres Group to be of a very high standard, easy to access and so worthwhile. It has allowed us to continue developing our staff and provide them with the skills they need, helping our business to continue to grow profitably.
“The Simon Acres Group courses, unlike many others, are focussed and tailored to the K&B industry, delivering real benefits for kitchen designers who want to improve their sales skills. We have been so impressed with the showroom sales course – it has been rolled out to kitchen designers and we will be offering the course to our bathroom designers too.”
Director of services at Simon Acres Group, Jordan Burns, said: “We are delighted that LBS has been recognised for its commitment in supporting and developing their teams through training, and proud to have played a part in their training excellence.”
