Brightstar has announced the launch of its official people development partnership with MTF.
This follows the news of it being awarded the gold standard in Investors in People (IIP).
This new collaboration which aims to build relationships, supports Brightstar’s teaching and learning ethos. MTF, the bridging finance provider, is also sponsoring the new ‘greenhouse’ which Brightstar is planning as part of the expansion of its premises when it acquires the adjoining office next month.
The bespoke area will be dedicated to people development activities. This will include training, coaching, meetings, studying and professional reading. It aims to ensure every member of staff is given the opportunity to reach their full potential while working in a happy environment.
Brightstar has increased staff numbers by 68% in the past year and, due to increased demand, has recently launched a new division for development finance.
Clare Jupp (pictured), director of people development at Brightstar, said: “Our partnership with MTF sits perfectly with our whole teaching and learning ethos. Indeed, MTF’s strapline of ‘building relationships’ perfectly complements our idea of ‘growing people’, while their key aims of ‘we listen, we work with you and we keep it simple’ sits perfectly with our values of openness, supporting one another and making it easy for intermediaries.”
Last week Tomer Aboody, the director of MTF, delivered a presentation on Brightstar’s rebranded portfolios of evidence to its entire workforce in its Billericay offices.
Jupp said: “The key to every great company is happy, productive and knowledgeable employees and retaining them requires a culture of growth, recognition and opportunity. The ‘greenhouse’ will help us to continue growing great employees, because better people equals better business.
“We are very excited about this new partnership which is recognition of the importance we place on raising standards and investing in our workforce for the future.”
Abode added: “Our partnership with Brightstar epitomises our commitment to building relationships and we feel wholly confident and happy that this will be a long and successful relationship. MTF is pleased to be supporting this element of Brightstar’s training and development and see great value in this initiative.
“It is admirable that Brightstar has made this level of commitment to the growth of its staff members and we look forward to hearing about its new developments and successes.”
