HSH achieves GOLD membership of The 5% Club

Going for Gold – The 5% Club Employer Audit Results

Hanham Secure Health is delighted to announce that we have been recognised with The 5% Club Gold Award through their 2021 Employer Audit Scheme. This award recognises our significant contribution to the continued development of all our employees through “earn & learn” Apprenticeships schemes.

We are proud of our investment in our staff members, 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 six hundred, The 5% Club represents over 1.2 Million Employees, 67,000 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.

In this inaugural year for the scheme, Hanham Secure Health was one of the one of the 58 Employers who met the Gold Standard.

“This is an incredible achievement for Hanham Secure Health. As a small business that only came into being in April 2020, to be able to implement our apprenticeship initiatives and to go on and achieve recognition of this in the form of The 5% Club Gold Membership, is truly outstanding. It is a perfect acknowledgement of the hard work and passion that has gone into creating a culture of learning, support and investing in our people. I would like to thank everyone in HSH for playing their part in supporting apprenticeships and offering our apprentices such fantastic opportunities. Thanks also go to our brilliant apprentices who have gone wholeheartedly into their courses with truly inspiring enthusiasm and determination. Finally, a special thank you Abi Bartlett, Head of Clinical Services. Abi has been our Learning and Development Lead over the last 18 months and has been instrumental in developing our apprenticeship programme.”

Mark Cameron OBE, Chief Executive at The 5% Club said, “We set out to create a scheme that 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 600 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.”
