Platform's managers are to train for the Institute of Leadership and Management team leading certificates. Platform hopes that by July, 30 managers will have gained the certificate.
It says the course should improve employee performance through its focus on the specific role of team leaders.
Managing director David Tweedy says: “This new people development initiative sets the standard for how we want to develop our more senior staff at Platform and will help us to take the business forward in 2004 with fully trained and qualified people. At Platform we are committed to continually improving our customer service levels and staff leadership training is essential in helping us achieve this.”
