IPG Health Medical Communications has been awarded the coveted Princess Royal Training Awards for their early-career training programme.
Terry Hayward joined the IPG Health Medical Communications team at their Macclesfield office to celebrate in style with a traditional afternoon tea, in honour of HRH The Princess Royal.
Delivered by the City and Guilds Foundation, The Princess Royal Training Awards recognise organisations that demonstrate exceptional commitment to learning and development. IPG Health Medical Communications received the award for their industry-leading early career training programme, Fuel (Future Experts and Leaders).
Building on the network’s distinguishing proactive career management (PCM) approach, IPG Health Medical Communications introduced Fuel in 2021 to equip trainees with the skills, experiences, networks, and inspiration needed to successfully launch their careers. Over 200 people have taken part in the programme so far, in the UK, North America and South Africa, with 100% of associates reporting that the programme met their expectations.
HRH The Princess Royal, President of the City and Guilds of London Institute, presented the award to IPG Health Medical Communications at a ceremony at St. James’ Palace, noting the sustainable provision of skills training provided through the programme and the positive impact on the organisation and its’ people. The Princess Royal Training Award adds to the team’s portfolio of awards this year, having also received two Stevie Awards for ‘Most Innovative Learning and Development Program (Fuel)’ and ‘Learning/Training Team of the Year’.
Caroline Smith, Executive Director, Talent said: “Here at IPG Health Medical Communications, we are driven by a healthy obsession with doing what’s right for our clients, their brands, and our people. We take our responsibility seriously when it comes to ensuring our people have endless opportunities to grow, develop new skills, and be challenged in a variety of ways. Fuel is our latest initiative to this end, and to have it recognised as one of the top training programmes in the industry and across the UK is a great source of pride for all of us.”
