Ainscough Crane Hire have been awarded Silver accredited membership via The 5% Club’s 2022-23 Employer Audit Scheme.
Ainscough Crane Hire is delighted to announce that we have been awarded Silver accredited membership via The 5% Club’s 2022-23 Employer Audit Scheme. This award recognises our significant contribution to the continued development of all our colleagues through “earn & learn” schemes such as apprenticeships and other training schemes.
We are proud of our investment in our people, which is why we joined The 5% Club. The 5% Club is a dynamic movement of employers all of whom are inspired to take positive action for increased, inclusive, and accessible workplace training for all. With a membership which now exceeds 750 companies, The 5% Club represents over 1.6 million employees, 93,500 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.
From an impressive list of 129 members, we were one of 14 employers who met the Silver Standard.
Peter Gibbs, CEO of Ainscough Crane Hire, said: “Our people are our greatest asset, the success of any business is reliant on identifying and nurturing talent, and we are proud to have achieved a recognised award that shows our commitment to supporting the development of all our colleagues.
“As the market leader in our industry, it’s vital that we continue to set the standard that all others follow and by achieving Silver membership with The 5% Club we are leading the way in raising standards and driving positive change.”
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.”
Gill Cronin, Director of Operations at The 5% Club added: “Having seen The Club grow to more than 750 members, I am always impressed at the commitment, drive and energy our members channel into offering “earn and learn” skills opportunities. To now see so many of these members gain Bronze, Silver and Gold accredited membership of The Club is inspiring and demonstrates how these companies are all contributing to the future of skills in our economy.”
