We are proud to announce our membership of The 5% Club, a formal acknowledgement of a long held view at Blakes that business should be about improving lives!
We currently have 3 first year and 4 third year apprentices in training, representing around 12% of our workforce. In addition, one of our longer serving members of staff has recently started a degree course and moved into a part time role to support his studies, while another is undertaking out of hours further qualifications, sponsored by Blakes.
Blakes customers already committed to The 5% Club include:- Qinetiq, Babcock, Redrow, Ogilvie, Aggregate Industries, Balfour Beatty and Tarmac.
We would like to encourage all our customers, suppliers and friends to consider The 5% Club and note that even if you do not currently meet the benchmark, membership only requires a commitment to pursue the 5% goal! Please visit the 5% website.
