H₂Oil & Gas Achieves Investors in Young People Accreditation
Employer of choice for young people.
H2Oil & Gas has achieved the Investors in Young People Accreditation, the only people management standard that focuses on an employer’s recruitment and retention of young people. This represents a true commitment to the training and development of young people and demonstrates H2Oil & Gas as an employer of choice for young people.
Launched in July 2014, Investors in Young People originated through a key recommendation from the Commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce, led by Sir Ian Wood. The accreditation is offered to all businesses across Scotland and exists to recognise and support organisations across Scotland in the employment of young people.
Commenting on the award, Scott Barrie, Managing Director said, “We are delighted to receive this accreditation which recognises our investment in and commitment to developing the next generation of engineering talent.”
Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People Scotland, said “This is a fantastic achievement for H2Oil & Gas and I and the whole IIYP team would like to wholeheartedly congratulate them. The Investors in Young People framework not only recognises and supports organisations in the employment of young people, but marks them out as an employer of choice. I envisage that many more organisations will wish to follow in the footsteps of H2Oil & Gas and demonstrate their commitment to young people by working with the Investors in Young People framework.”
He continued: “The benefits of recruiting and developing young people are countless. These include the creation of a talent pool for the future, new and increased skills in areas such as IT and social media, fresh eyes and mind-sets into business operations along with enthusiasm and unique talents.”
