TransUnion, a global information and insights company and one of the UK’s leading credit reference agencies, is proud to affirm its pledge to support learning and development for UK colleagues with its ongoing membership of The 5% Club.
Having signed up to the charter last year, TransUnion is one of over 750 companies that have pledged to raise the number of apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formal training programmes to five per cent of its UK workforce within five years.
Collectively, The 5% Club represents over 1.6 million employees, with 93,500 of those in “earn and learn” schemes.
“We’re delighted to have been recognised by The 5% Club once again, following its review of our activities and plans,“ said Tammy Taylor-Stowe, chief human resources officer at TransUnion in the UK. “This reflects our ongoing commitment to supporting the education and careers of our colleagues, offering ‘earn and learn’ schemes across the business, and developing skills in areas such as technology, data and analytics, finance, marketing, project management and human resources. These range from entry level to postgraduate and we know that colleagues taking part have found these schemes highly rewarding.”
As part of its programme, TransUnion has partnered with a range of organisations including Sheffield Hallam University, York St.John University, Leeds City College and more to offer a wide selection of opportunities.
Mark Cameron OBE, chief executive at The 5% Club said, “Our scheme recognises the efforts of all those employers who invest in their workforce through a broad range of workplace learning schemes. Their efforts and achievements are to be applauded.”
