Developing new business talent
EEF works with Fibercore to ensure the ongoing training of existing staff and nurturing talent.
“In our business the expertise and experience of our staff is critical to the delivery of high-quality products and services. These days it’s not easy to find and nurture apprentices and graduates for ongoing business development."
By tailoring a series of training programmes for Fibercore, we were able to deliver specific courses best suited for the business and individuals, with workshops and one-day courses held at our regional training facilities.
“EEF training adds real value to the business, being very high quality and excellent value for money. If you are making this level of commitment to be away from your business, you need to know that you’re going to receive the return on investment.”
Cutting through the red tape
While working with our team of legal experts in employment tribunal preparation and representation Fibercore has valued the legal services delivered through membership.
“We have had to use EEF’s services for, fortunately, only one tribunal case. In a climate of detailed and complex employment law and legislation, where employees can so easily consider that they may have been wronged, how do you address this for benefit of both the individual concerned and your business?
For Fibercore the experience, knowledge and legal process undertaken by EEF was extensive and diligent, such that the case did not have to go to court.”
“I cannot see why any business would want to employ a leading law firm with the level of high costs associated, when the expertise is readily available and proven through EEF membership.”
Working together to influence government policy
Because we facilitate a direct link between businesses and the policy makers in London and Brussels, Fibercore can play its part in ensuring that manufacturing-related issues are kept at the heart of the government’s agenda.
“The support and services offered by EEF helps to make this process as easy as possible, even in light of more recent legislation in employment law and environmental changes.”
