ISG awarded second 'Gold' The 5% Club membership
This award recognises our significant contribution to the continued development of all our employees through ‘earn & learn’ schemes such as apprenticeships, graduate schemes and sponsored students course placements.
Out of 180 members, ISG was one of 120 employers which met the Gold standard after reporting over 8% of our workforce were classified as early careers. The announcement supports our ‘Right thing first strategy’ and goal to be an outstanding employer, creating a culture where our employees feel empowered and encouraged to grow, learn, collaborate and become the best they can be.
The 5% Club is a dynamic movement of employers who are inspired to take positive action for increased, inclusive, and accessible workplace training. The network includes over 900 companies and 1.6 million employees, 101,000 of whom are in ‘earn and learn’ schemes.
The Employer Audit is a unique scheme which validates the employers’ activities, explores their future plans and commitments, as well as examining their approaches to quality, social mobility, diversity and inclusion.
Mark Cameron OBE, Chief Executive at The 5% Club said, “Our Employer Audit scheme recognises the efforts of all those Employers who invest in their workforce through a broad range of workplace learning schemes. It is fantastic that in these challenging times so many are able to commit to the Employer Audit and to gain the credit for their efforts, and that the majority are striving to expand their schemes over the coming years. Their efforts and achievements are to be applauded.”
