The award was recently presented by Falkirk East MSP Michelle Thomson after she met staff.
David Taylor, managing director, said: “We’re celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year, and obtaining our Investors in People and Investors in Young People gold accreditation is reflective of the commitment we’ve made not only to our staff, but to our clients and the wider community.”
IKM employs approximately 60 people at in Grangemouth, and recently launched a new regional office in Runcorn, Cheshire, making it well placed to hire new staff and graduates looking for opportunities within STEM environments.

The IIP and IIYP programmes are assessed every three years, so going from silver to gold status this year is a rewarding outcome and reflective of a lot of effort from our staff.”
