Our commitment to The 5% Club means a minimum of 5% of our total workforce must meet The 5% Club requirements of apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formal programmes. Bagnalls exceeded this figure from the start and received Gold status. However, we are now proud to say we are one of only a few companies who have been awarded Platinum membership as more than 10% of our workforce are now in “earning and learning” positions with the company.

We are still very proud of being the inaugural winners in 2005 of the PDA “Special Award for Excellence” for our dedication to training, innovation and customer focus. We were again named “Supreme Winners” at the 2023 annual trophy awards for the complex redecoration project undertaken at Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
