'People are at the heart of everything we do'
We are determined that working for GRS should be fulfilling and rewarding. Our aim is to create and maintain an environment where everybody is valued and can reach their potential. The GRS Academy is designed to make this happen – it’s one of the great examples proving that our people are at the heart of everthing we do.
The GRS Academy is a people-dedicated learning centre plus support team, committed to the development of the huge pool of talented people we have working at GRS. Through the Academy, we provide high-quality practical training for our employees at all levels.
Such is the standard of our programmes that GRS is one of the few companies in our sector to be awarded ‘Recognised Provider’ of the ILM, the UK’s leader in the provision of leadership, management and coaching qualifications.
Besides running courses in-house, we also have strong links with a network of external professional bodies, including the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, which runs a three-day practical learning event as part of our acclaimed First Line Management (FLM) programme.
Development is offered at various levels and cover all our core business areas:
- Leadership & Management
- Customer Service & Sales
- Production & Logistics
- Business Administration
The GRS Academy was first set up in 2016 and has grown rapidly. In the past year alone, more than a third of our 800-strong workforce has taken part in personal development through our people-dedicated learning centre.
