Manchester Central recognised for investing in its people

International conference and events venue Manchester Central claims it is the first major dedicated venue for conferences and events in the UK to achieve a bronze Investors in People Award.

The venue complex introduced a new HR team in 2012 and a raft of staff-focussed initiatives followed.

An improved appraisal system linked to company values was introduced; new dedicated training budgets were made available for every team and a Team Oscars event was staged to recognise staff who had made outstanding contributions to the business.

Angie Robinson, Chief Executive of Manchester Central, said: “We have made a huge effort to ensure staff are fully supported, inspired and have the opportunities to grow with the business.

“I am thrilled to achieve this level of award to recognise the investment we have made in our team.  We are the only major dedicated venue in the UK to achieve this level and are leading by example in the development of our teams.”
