Princess Anne has awarded Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK with a Princess Royal Training Award.
The 66-year-old royal handed out the accolade to 34 businesses at a ceremony at St James's Palace in London to companies, which have shown outstanding training and skills development.
On the award, Vincente Connolly, Director National Sales Mercedes-Benz and FUSO Trucks UK, said: "I am delighted that our dedication to training and development has been recognised in this way. At Mercedes-Benz Trucks we place a premium on ensuring that our employees have the chance to learn and grow in their roles. We understand that this is not only good for them, but is also vital to the success of the business."
The new honour was presented by the City & Guilds Group.
City & Guilds Group Chief Executive, Chris Jones added: "All of the successful organisations deserve enormous praise. I hope these awards have shone a light on how important it is for businesses to invest in training to boost their productivity, address skills gaps and develop their leaders. This has never mattered more than in today's uncertain economy. I hope this year's winners inspire other organisations to share their experiences, and put forward their training and development success stories."
