Our people are integral to our success. How they interact with customers, share their knowledge and expertise on our wood and timber products, and in turn value their work, is key to us. Experience shows that employees work best in a stimulating and nurturing environment so we try to create the right setting by being inclusive and giving people the opportunity to develop. To this end we are keen to recruit, train and help our people to blossom within the Arnold Laver organisation. We need a raft of diverse skills and capabilities within ever location and we continue to raise our game thanks to our people across the nation.
The 5% Club
We belong to the 5% Club which is a movement of employers providing ‘earn and learn’ opportunities to develop the skills and talents people need to become more employable and create meaningful careers. We are just one of many patrons which are major high performing and socially responsible organisations that take recruitment, training and development seriously. The 5% Club is the kitemark of responsible, high quality employers. You can find out more about the 5% Club here.
Arnold Laver adapts to its regions and we like to think that we are a member of each and every community where we have a site. We operate a policy of trying to recruit the best people for the right position, and actively promote an ethos of equal opportunities for all, wherever we are. The personal and professional development of our people is essential to our success. Our future is in the hands of our employees.
Whilst every local community and region is different, in these ever-changing times, we share a need to be nimble and adapt our services to fit with the Covid-19 Government guidelines. We have enjoyed 100 years of employing excellent people and growing our success, and whilst these last few months have certainly thrown up some challenges, our people continue to be exceptional – just as they always have been.
