Watson Martin is proud to be supporting #KeepBritainWorking campaign, launched by James Reed, Chairman and CEO of the recruitment giant REED. The objective of the campaign is to preserve jobs and to protect livelihoods and supporters include a wide range of businesses, politicians and industry bodies.
Watson Martin Directors Heather Watson and Melanie Martin were among the early supporters of the campaign and are both committed to operating ‘business as usual’ during the current turbulent times.
Here is their pledge to #KeepBritainWorking:
“Thanks to our incredible team we have moved all our CIPD qualifications and apprenticeship programmes fully online so keeping Watson Martin very much open for business and able to support our candidates during this unprecedented time.”
“We have adapted our business to ensure that we operate business as usual for our customers and we pledge to do everything we can to retain our excellent team during the Covid-19 crisis.”
Heather Watson and Melanie Martin set up Watson Martin in 2004 and the business has helped thousands of HR professionals to become CIPD qualified. The company is also an approved provider of HR and L&D apprenticeships nationally and works with apprentices from large levy paying organisations.
Watson Martin has offered digital delivery of HR and L&D qualifications for many years and was able to move all its CIPD and apprenticeship programmes along with in-company courses and consultancy online at the start of the lockdown, enabling people to learn from home. The company employs as advisers only renowned HR and L&D industry experts and has stepped-up its successful series of Learning Bites offering advice and support to people in the profession. Recent webinars on the challenges facing HR during the Covid-19 crisis and on remote working have attracted large audiences.
The #KeepBritainWorking campaign was first introduced by REED during the 2008/9 financial crisis and has been relaunched during the current pandemic to encourage people to share ideas, encourage good practice and help individuals and the economy to recover.
