Aylesbury Panelcraft is the first specialist accident repairer to achieve the IMI Employer Recognition Award.
Bob and Dawn Mullins, owners of accident repairer Aylesbury Panelcraft, were presented with their IMI Recognised Employer Award by Ian Gillgrass, IMI Accreditation Manager and Heidi McNeill, IMI Professional Development Sales Executive at the ABP Club Convention in November 2015.
Developed by the IMI in response to the growing demand for an independent sign of quality and professionalism in the automotive industry, the IMI Employer Recognition Scheme celebrates employees’ expertise, knowledge, commitment to ethical conduct and continuing professional development.
To become an IMI Recognised Employer, a minimum of 50% of the company’s employees must be on the IMI Professional Register through IMI Membership or IMI Accreditation. The scheme is intended to help motivate staff by offering professional recognition and the opportunity to keep up-to-date with learning, new skills and working practices.
How to become a Recognised Employer by The IMI
Dawn first found out about this award scheme while at an ABP Club Women’s Automotive meeting last September. This was hosted by the IMI at their HQ in Hertfordshire, when Heidi McNeill gave a presentation to the largely female audience about the IMI Employer Recognition Scheme.
“While Heidi was explaining this, I realised that Aylesbury Panelcraft qualified for this Award so I followed this up and this is the happy outcome” said Dawn.
Steph Savill of FOXY Lady Drivers Club added “I’m delighted but not surprised to see that Aylesbury Panelcraft has received their IMI Recognised Employer Award in confirmation of their commitment to professional and ethical business standards.”
If any other businesses are reading this and are members of the IMI and/or have staff on the IMI Professional Register why not contact Heidi McNeill about the IMI Employer Recognition Scheme and find out if they might qualify too!
