Over the past few months Kainos has been working closely with the IET and was formally recognised as a Corporate Partner at a signing ceremony at the company’s London office on Wednesday 1 October, 2014. This new partnership demonstrates Kainos’s high level of commitment to professional recognition and continued professional development.
One of the main benefits to becoming a Corporate Partner is that Kainos and the IET will now be able to work together to create a tailored package of products, services, support and accreditation workshops, as well as being a Professional Home for Life for Kainos employees at every stage of their career.
This new corporate partnership will help Kainos’s engineers and technicians to develop by providing in-house professional registration guidance and by encouraging engagement with the wider engineering and technology community.
The IET’s Head of Membership Mark Organ and Corporate Account Manager Matthew Barber visited Kainos’s London office to inform the engineering team about the IET and how membership and professional registration can benefit them. Kainos’s Chief Technical Officer Tom Gray signed the partnership agreement alongside Mark on behalf of the two organisations.
“I am pleased that Kainos has taken the step into Corporate Partnership” commented Tom Gray. “We place strong emphasis on supporting our employees to continue their professional development, and becoming a Corporate Partner recognises our close working relationship with the IET in this endeavour”.
The invitation-only corporate partner scheme will support Kainos and its employees by providing access to a diverse portfolio of products and services to help maintain knowledge and enhance skills within the industry. Both organisations are now engaged to support the professional development of Kainos’s engineers and technicians, with the aim of establishing and maintaining a culture of commitment to keep technical skills up to date, gaining a professionally registered workforce and enriching experience through continued professional development (CPD).
“Becoming an IET Corporate Partner sends the message that Kainos is committed to the highest professionalism and standards of its engineers and technicians” says Mark. “We are delighted to be working more closely with Kainos and look forward to supporting their engineers and technicians throughout their professional career.”
