News: Rok leads the way with training pilot programme


With reports of job cuts and the downturn in the building sector, Yorkshire maintenance and building business, Rok, is investing in the training of its business leaders of today and tomorrow by developing its workforce from within. Working with Leeds-based Red Sky Learning, Rok is piloting its "Leading The Way" training programme with 40 members of its team across the North of England currently undergoing a 12 month course in leadership skills. There will be a group of ten candidates from Yorkshire based Rok centres in Wakefield, Rotherham, Leeds and York, with groups from the North East and North West also taking part. Rob Dickson, Rok’s People Director for the North of England, said: "The programme is vital in the current economic climate and is designed with Rok’s values and strategies for success in mind. The aim is to strengthen the organisation for the future, making sure the right people are in place with the right skills. "While Rok is well positioned to weather the downturn in the economy by being a diverse business with a focus across the building and maintenance industry, it would be foolish to stop development of our people, because they are vital to our success both now and in the future." Rok in Yorkshire saw its regional maintenance division quadruple in two years, resulting in the establishment of a new team based in Rotherham in June.
