TransUnion Signs up to The 5% Club Charter for UK Employers

TransUnion, a global information and insights company and one of the UK’s leading credit reference agencies, is proud to showcase its support for learning and development by joining The 5% Club.

TransUnion joins a host of leading brands which have signed up to the charter and committed to raising the number of apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formal training programmes to 5% of its UK workforce within five years.

“We’re proud to join The 5% Club as a testament to our ongoing and firm commitment to supporting and educating our colleagues so that they can fulfil their career ambitions,” said Tammy Taylor-Stowe, chief human resources officer at TransUnion in the UK. “As part of our strategic objective for long-term and sustainable growth we already have a number of forward-looking programmes in place such as Girls Into Tech, WE Lead – to help progress women into leadership roles, and our ongoing Work Inspiration placement schemes, so we’re thrilled to be extending our offering as we become part of The 5% Club.

“Putting our pledge into practice, this year we launched a new graduate scheme which is helping colleagues across various departments, including finance, analytics, HR, marketing, project management and customer services, to obtain professional qualifications alongside their day-to-day roles. We’re delighted with the progress we’ve seen already, as this group develop both personally and professionally.”

On signing up to the charter, TransUnion completed The 5% Club’s annual employer benchmarking programme which examines five aspects of recruitment, training and development for all colleagues completing a training programme. This looked at the number of employees on such programmes, the breadth and quality of the training schemes, commitment to inclusion and social mobility and plans for future growth.

Mark Cameron OBE, CEO of The 5% Club said: “We’re really pleased to welcome TransUnion into The 5% Club where we have a shared goal of creating a skilled workforce through ‘earn and learn’ development programmes. We also want to offer our congratulations to TransUnion for being awarded silver membership in their first year of our employer audit programme – a great achievement.”
