A new partnership has been announced between KBB and merchant service provider Simon Acres Group and Workpays, who are coming together in a bid to address common issues surrounding training and the hiring of apprentices.
Workpays helps people of all ages across the country realise their potential and supports businesses by ensuring they have the skilled staff they need.
The partnership is being launched with an open forum event for construction-related businesses on Wednesday 12th July at Simon Acres Group head office in Irthlingborough. The event will provide an opportunity to share views, and identify barriers and common issues when future proofing a workforce.
Jordan Burns, group sales director at Simon Acres Group, said: “We are committed to taking action to address the skills gap by working with likeminded organisations. Together we will promote the benefits of apprentices and the need to upskill our existing workforce, as well as provide information and solutions back to the industry.”
Alex Glasner from Workpays, pictured, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Simon Acres Group who we know are passionate about apprenticeships. Only with a larger voice and by giving industry more information can we make a tangible difference to the skills gap.”
If you would like to be involved by attending the event on 12th July or by joining the steering group, please contact Lewis Morrish on 0203 701 6660.
