Investing In the Pursuit of World Class Products – World Class People
Baines Simmons commits to investing up to £500,000 per annum in Continuing Practice Education for Consultants.
Keven Baines Managing Director announces …
“We are committed to offering the market world class products through world class people – and are investing in just that… with the aim of being truly world class in the areas in which we specialise. Following the ongoing investment in our Consultants CPD, our next step is to invest in a programme of Subject Matter Experts to further manage, build and develop the expertise we can make available to our clients”.
In just the last five months we have trained almost 6,000 client delegates – this record level shows that many of our partnered clients also believe in the philosophy of investing in people, despite the difficult economic climate.
We aim to offer clients up-to-the-minute proven experts to help our clients solve their problems. In order to make sure that our clients receive only the latest thought leadership and guidance a significant investment is being made to enable almost 50 members of the Baines Simmons team to attend professional & technical development events four times a year.
The most recent of these events was held in June 2009, in which a significant investment was made to 50 of the world’s leading airworthiness, operations and maintenance safety professionals. At this meeting our Head of Operations, Howard Leach, delivered updates on the aviation industry, our products, latest critical thinking and a review of how we can further help our partnered clients improve efficiencies resulting from safety programmes.
We held numerous team exercises, examining recent aviation incidents, the return on investment from safety and regulatory training and consulting assignments and reviewed the latest updates from around the industry.
Bob Simmons, Technical Director, who chaired the event, commented afterwards, “What a fantastic team we have here. I feel everybody joined in and contributed, giving rise to a very useful two days. The value to our clients and the positive feedback from the clients and our team justifies this significant investment.”
