Yamazaki Mazak has been awarded Employer of the Year at the 2018 Industrial Cadets Awards, beating the likes of Airbus, the RAF, Airbus and Tata Consultancy Services to the accolade. The awards were presented by HRH The Prince of Wales and celebrate both the achievements of young people who have completed their nationally accredited work-based experience programmes.
One of just two accolades open to employers, the Employer of the Year award recognises companies that have demonstrated outstanding engagement with young people and the Industrial Cadets initiative, as well as illustrating best practice in employer engagement on the work experience STEM agenda.
Dave Barnett, Learning & Development Manager at Yamazaki Mazak, commented: “To be awarded Top Employer by such a prestigious organisation, beating the likes of Airbus, the RAF and Tata in the process, is a real testament to Mazak’s commitment to the next generation of engineers. It was a great honour to welcome HRH The Prince of Wales to Mazak’s Worcester facility in 2013, and to receive the award from him today is extremely special.”
