We are delighted to report that the Hankinson Group, incorporating Roy Hankinson (Holdings) Limited, Whittle Programmed Maintenance Limited and EP (Industrial & Commercial Painting) Limited, continues to achieve accreditation against the 6th Generation Investors in People Standard after a successful 12 month review.

Investors in People is the UK's leading accreditation for business improvement through people management, and provides a wealth of resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow, with a focus on good people making great business and the Group has held the Standard since 1996.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “Achieving and maintaining the Investors in People Standard is something that any organisation should be truly proud of. Working with Investors in People inspires and enables leaders, managers and employees at all levels to build their skills, improve their performance and achieve their potential. We’d like to congratulate Hankinson Group on their continuing achievement.”

Commenting on the success of our annual review, Stephen Hankinson, Group Chief Executive, said: “The introduction of a 12 month review clearly demonstrates our continuing commitment to realising the potential of our people as well as up-skilling our existing valued employees, so I am delighted with our success. We have some exciting people plans over the next 12 months including an influx of new apprentices. These apprentices will include for the first time industrial painters following the approval of the new Apprenticeship Standard and End Point Assessment (EPA) for Industrial Coatings Applicator, a standard we have been closely involved in.” To read more about the Industrial Coatings Applicator Trailblazer Apprenticeship Scheme, click here.
