A new set of year in industry students with EPD Managing Director Pete Whipp (left)
In a highly competitive job market, more students than ever before will need to gain work experience in their chosen field alongside their university studies. This is especially true for industries that require practical experience, whether that be out on site, in the lab or in the field, much like the variety of careers we have here at RSK.
RSK’s 3,500+ employees are uniting in a company-wide mission to end mental health discrimination. Following on from RSK Chief Executive Officer Alan Ryder and Human Resources Director Zoe Brunswick signing the Time to Change Employer Pledge in September 2019, the whole company will get the chance to sign the pledge for themselves. This will consolidate our views as a company, that mental health issues must be recognised and addressed, and efforts made to reduce the stigma that surrounds them.
RSK has several employees who volunteer as STEM Ambassadors
Across the UK, hundreds of volunteers from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related careers are giving up their time to help bring the STEM subjects to life in- and outside the classroom. Forecasts indicate that the UK will experience a skills shortage in the STEM subjects, so it is important to help in inspiring young people to choose a career in STEM.
Happy and healthy employees are key to RSK’s success. Its commitment to employee health and wellbeing has seen employees take part in more than 10 initiatives since 2015, covering all aspects of wellbeing. The most popular is the Pedometer Challenge, an engaging company-wide event that puts us through our paces!
