For Paul Wright – managing director of Wright Solutions – to understand the real strengths of the region’s business community it is important to step back in time.
The HR recruitment and training specialist was established almost 15 years ago but it is the businesses set up more than two decades ago from which he draws his inspiration.
“Back in 2010 Wright Solutions, in partnership with the Birmingham Post, ran a series of business training events focused on innovation,” said Mr Wright.
“One of the key note speakers was renowned historian Carl Chinn who highlighted some of Birmingham’s remarkable industrial history. He talked about how whilst once only a small medieval market town, by 1791, Birmingham had helped lay the foundations of modern industrial society. And it did this not because it benefitted from proximity to any great natural resource but through the entrepreneurial spirit, innovation and creativity of its workforce.
“Things may have changed since 1791 when Birmingham was known as ‘the City of 1000 Trades’ but as it remains an international commerce centre it is clear that the West Midlands’ businesses and its workforce continue to innovate and punch well above their weight at a global level.
“Wright Solutions is proud sponsors of the Medium to Large Business Award at Birmingham Post’s Business Awards in 2012 and looks forward to joining them in celebrating the continued resilience and fortitude of business in the West Midlands. But more than that, we are proud of the support that we have been able to give many of those businesses in recruiting and developing their talented workforces.”
