POOLE’S SuperValu store in Moira has brought home a major accolade from a prestigious UK awards scheme.
The local shop won the award for best Staff Development at the 2012 Independent Achievers Academy (IAA) Gala Dinner, held recently in London.
Eddie Poole commented; “We are delighted to have been recognised for our staff development projects, as we are very focussed on helping employees develop to their full potential within the business.
“This leads to a more motivated team and in turn impacts positively on customers, who are dealing with well trained and happy staff.”
The aim of the IAA Gala Dinner is to recognise achievement and 13 awards were split between 11 retailers from all parts of the UK.
“The Academy is focused on continuous improvement”, said Kate Daw, IAA Project Manager.
“We help retailers and suppliers work together to grow sales and profits in local shops.
“The winners of the awards demonstrated continued commitment to their local communities, our congratulations go out to them all.”
