Queen's Award

 

Mind Tools has grown rapidly in terms of both people and sales. This growth, and the way that we have achieved it, was recognized in both 2012 and 2017 with a Queen's Award for Enterprise, for outstanding achievement in international trade.

A Queen's Award is often regarded as a "knighthood" for a business, and is the highest official U.K. award for British business.

Founded by James Manktelow in 1996, Mind Tools now employs more than 56 people in the U.K., and has team members around the world, including in the U.S., Canada, France, South Africa, India, and Australia.

Investors in People

 

Our success is largely down to the passion and enthusiasm of the people we employ. We are committed to making Mind Tools a great place to work, and ensure that we practice what we preach by creating a positive and engaging work environment for everyone.

In early 2017, we earned a rare Investors in People Gold award, following on from our IIP Bronze award in 2016. This recognizes our excellence as an employer, and our commitment to high-quality people development and management.

Training Industry’s Top 20 Training Companies

 

Training Industry prepares Top 20 and Watch List reports on critical sectors of the training marketplace as part of its mission to continually monitor the market for the best providers of training services and technologies.

Mind Tools made Watch Lists for one of Training Industry's award categories in 2017, and two in 2018. We were then selected for the full 2018 Top 20 Online Learning Library Companies List.

Training Industry commented, “The companies included in the Top 20 Online Learning Library Companies List have demonstrated their value to professionals and their employers. Learners now expect access to the best content, from anywhere in the world, on their schedule, and these companies are exceeding expectations.”
