Employer support is an incredibly important factor in student success, and it is a win for everyone, with the knowledge gained benefiting the employee, the organisation and its clients. The value is evident in this year’s winner line-up: nine of this year’s winners work for firms accredited for their learning and development provision on STEP’s Employer Partnership Programme – Carey Olsen Jersey LLP; Blake Morgan LLP; Walkers; HSBC Bank plc, Jersey Branch; Bedell Cristin; Brodies LLP; Harper Macleod LLP; and Anderson Strathern LLP.

STEP’s Employer Partnership Programme was established in 2014 to enable us to work closely with employers to support the professional development of our members and build on the credibility of the STEP brand by:
Louise Abercrombie, Blackadders LLP (Platinum Employer Partner)
The Employer Partnership Programme (EPP) has been designed to help employers maximise the learning of their STEP members and is offered across three accreditation levels: Employer Partner, Gold Employer Partner and Platinum Employer Partner. Once an employer has demonstrated that it meets one of the three levels, the organisation’s learning and development programme is endorsed with an appropriate EPP logo. This signals to stakeholders, prospective employees and the general business community that it values professional development and substantiates this with resources and a supportive organisational learning culture.
