Our People

Without the commitment and skill of our employees, Glendinning would not be able to deliver its products and services to you. Our high level of investment in training ensures quality and service excellence as well as helping to keep our workplaces safe.

Demonstrating the competence of our employees is a key objective and we use qualified internal trainers – such as our SAFED driver trainers or NVQ assessors at our approved NVQ centre at Linhay Hill – or external sources, to give our staff the knowledge to produce a first-class product.

The future development of young people will help sustain our industry and we operate a highly successful apprentice scheme, most notably within our contracting division and engineering, transport and plant facilities. Glendinning was recognised in June 2007 for our apprenticeship programme.

We also believe strongly that employees should have the opportunity to be involved in the future development of their company. Regular meetings of our employee consultation committees ensure that those who are interested can have an active part to play.

Working alongside our health and safety committees, our employee health and safety representatives inspect our working environment and help shape our safety culture through our goal of zero accidents.
