Our people are behind the continued success of GKR.
With consistent investment in personal development and a proactive approach to health, safety and wellbeing, we build the highest skilled and motivated teams in the business.
We empower and train our employees so that they feel valued and realise the contribution they make to the business and our clients.
This ultimately establishes the highest standards and improves the way our industry operates.
From trainee scaffolders to our Civil Engineering Graduates, all employees are trained to the relevant professional qualification and are mentored and supported according to individual development plans.
The GKR Academy – Leading excellence in scaffolding
The Academy demonstrates GKR’s commitment to developing future leaders in our industry.
Having well trained leaders helps all individuals within the business grow and develop. This establishes the highest performance, safety and quality standards within GKR.
The GKR Academy was opened in 2014 and is the first of its kind in the scaffolding and access industry.
We worked with the Institute of Leadership & Management to create a bespoke course adapted to the learning styles and capabilities of our current and future employees.
We believe that by helping scaffolders shape their career path, we enhance perceptions of the industry, and the professional and skilled people who work within it.
Health, safety and wellbeing
Health and safety is a core competency in any construction business.
We care for and monitor the health of our staff on site with Fit For Work Safety Critical Medicals.
The physical and mental wellbeing of our employees is paramount, and our purpose fitted occupational health vans help us maintain the health of our staff.
However, our safety standards and training mitigate many health issues.
We maintain standards that are above industry practice, which is recognised by the industry through awards and involvement in client training.
