Manorview’s Investment in People Pays Off

19th of June, 2017 | Posted in Hotel News, Jobs & Recruitment, People Email Article | Print Article

Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Employability and Training visited Manorview Hotels & Leisure Group’s Busby Hotel last month, at the same time as the group consolidated its position as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

The Minister was there to publicise the Government’s recent statistics regarding the Modern Apprenticeship programme which saw the number of Modern Apprenticeship starts increase to 26,262 this year.

During his visit he met Manorview boss Steve Graham, as well as just some of the 55 Manorview staff who are currently taking part in its Modern Apprenticeship Programme. But no doubt he also took time to congratulate the group on its latest achievement.

This is the second time the family-owned business, which celebrates its 10th birthday this year, has been identified as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain, the first time being in 2015.

To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.

Steve Graham CEO, Manorview Group, said, “At Manorview we have a philosophy of leading by inspiration rather than manipulation, and to be named in an Inspiring Companies List means a lot to us. I’m delighted to be included in this list for a second time, it shows we are continuing to grow and move in the right direction, and in line with our ethos”.

Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said, “Four years on, LSEG’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report continues to highlight the dynamic, entrepreneurial and ambitious businesses across the country that are boosting UK productivity, driving economic growth and creating jobs.”

Meanwhile at The Busby Hotel the Minister heard directly from Scott MacIntyre, the group’s Head of Training and Development on how helpful the Modern Apprenticeship Programme is. He said, “The Modern Apprenticeship Programme is a great tool for us. It allows us to identify and progress talent. We use it to invest in our people and we invest time and in the training and development of our team and we help to build those stars of the future.”

Steve Graham concluded, “There are excellent opportunities for career development in the hospitality industry. As a group we’ve expanded quickly and part of that expansion is down to having the correct people in place. That’s what helps us grow.”
