The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the world’s leading organisation dedicated to advancing business coaching. The organisation nurtures relationships with companies globally to encourage effective employee coaching programmes.
In what is a truly remarkable achievement for the Saint-Gobain-owned company, Ian Davy, Solaglas Windowcare managing director, was presented with the award by ICF President Karen Tweedie at the 2009 ICF Annual International Conference that took place in Orlando, Florida on 4 December 2009.
Over the past 18 months, Solaglas Windowcare has made major commitments to its employee training programmes, in particular its Field Manager Development Programme and it was for this that the Rotherham-based company received the ICF International Prism Award.
Ian Davy, Solaglas Windowcare managing director commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this prestigious award. Past recipients have included the BBC, NASA, Deloitte and Touche and IBM, so to be amongst these global business giants is a fantastic accomplishment. “We pride ourselves in our innovative approach and employee development and training and this award is testament to the high standards continually attained by our employees.”
Gary E Boyler, ICF Executive Director stated that it was the company’s ability to embrace emerging trends, build community, demonstrate innovative management and effectively verify outstanding return on investment. He added, “The documented impact of coaching within an organisation is crucial to our profession and we are extremely proud to recognise Solaglas Windowcare as a recipient of the 2009 Prism Award – the honour is well deserved.”
