Be Wiser Insurance fought off stiff competition to win the coveted "Training Excellence & Impact" award at The Insurance Times Awards 2014. The company was shortlisted for four awards, but Be Wiser's commitment to training and development really shone through.
The judging process was in two stages; a written entry as well as a presentation to a panel of distinguished judges. One thing that may have set us apart from the competition could have been who we sent to present our case.
While other insurance companies sent CEOs and directors to the judges we felt it was a great development opportunity for our team – so we sent along two of our graduates to present the panel.
And they did an excellent job!
Crescens George, Director of Learning & Organisational Development, comments:
“Winning this award is the ultimate endorsement of our belief that investment in our people is of supreme importance for the future of our business and the industry. Our focus on creating and nourishing talent through both professional qualifications and practical experience have a positive impact on the future of our team, the Be Wiser community, and the insurance industry as whole, and it is this ethos that drives us forward.”
