Ceremony Will Highlight Training Achievements; ELWA PEOPLE IN BUSINESS AWARDS: Successful Development of Skills Will Be Honoured


OUTSTANDING achievement in training and people development will be recognised at a special awards ceremony on St David's Day.

The Elwa People in Business Awards will celebrate the achievements and successes of Welsh companies over the past year, highlighting innovation and commitment in tackling the training challenge.

The event, to be held in the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport, is expected to attract more than 500 people and will be chaired by Nicola Heywood-Thomas.

There will be six awards including investor of the year, which has three categories relating to the size of the organisation, learner of the year, people manager of the year and investor in the community.

Steve Martin, chief executive of Elwa, said, "These awards are an opportunity to honour those businesses and other employer organisations across Wales who have excelled in achieving business success through developing the skills and abilities of their staff.

"We hope that the success stories we hear on the night will encourage more employers to follow suit."

Finalists Investor in community category: Bryncynon Community Revival Strategy, Safer Merthyr Tydfil and Legal and General.

Since being established in 1996 Bryncynon Community Revival Strategy has worked towards creating a greater sense of community in one of Wales's most deprived areas. Employing 44, the team at BCRS has developed a number of education programmes and participation projects in the village.

Safer Merthyr Tydfil was formed in 1997 with the aim of reducing crime levels in the town.

It employs 33 and its various programmes, including its home safe burglary reduction project, have proved very successful.

Legal and General, which employs more than 1,000 people in Cardiff, is one of the UK's largest financial services company. Its support for charities includes its involvement with Crime Concern Llanrumney Youth Inclusion project in Cardiff.

Learner of the year: Suzanne Wyburn , Bees Knees Day Nursery, Lucy Pellegrini, Thames Water Services and Linda Harvey, Coleg Ceredigion.
