The Queen's Award 2018

On the 18th October 2018, we were honoured to be presented with The Queen's Award for Enterprise: Sustainable Development, for the second time.

We were one of only 8 businesses in the country to receive this accolade, in recognition for our continuous efforts to develop a strategy that will enable us to be sustainable for the future.


Investors in People Platinum

Brother UK has been externally assessed by Investors in People and has been honoured with the highest award possible, Platinum, in recognition of our people management. 

It is estimated that only 0.05% of companies in the UK could meet such a high standard and marks us as an industry leader in people development.

Read more about our Investors in People Platinum status.


Investors in Sales

The sales team at Brother UK have been accredited by the Association of Professional Sales (APS) after passing an ethical sales assessment to achieve professional, registered status.

Although 50% is the benchmark set by the APS, more than 90 per cent of the sales team at Brother UK have gained APS professional registration.

We are the first sector vendor in the UK to meet the standards for ethical selling across our sales force.


Princess Royal Training Award

Our Learning and Development Programme has been awarded the Princess Royal Training award for dedication to developing our people. We are thrilled to be receiving this award for the second time.

Our people are at the heart of our sustained business achievements and are our most important asset – it’s fantastic that this has been recognised once again.

Accolades like the Princes Royal Training Award help us to attract, retain and develop the very best talent. This means we can offer our partners innovative, market-leading solutions, as well as an inspired and motivated team to work with.

Following on from our success in the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in April, this is shaping up to be a truly special 50th anniversary year for Brother UK.
