The CSR programme of 2M Holdings, “2M STEM” saw a leap in the number of young people helped last year, with staff across the Group helping over 550 young people across the UK to access a career in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM.)
2M Holding’s staff volunteered in schools, universities, careers fairs and a science museum to inspire and advise young people on a career in STEM.
2M Holdings created and supported graduate jobs, apprenticeships, internships and work experience opportunities across its sites, from its R&D Laboratories, to its sales centres of excellence.
2016 was a record year for the number of STEM graduates recruited into 2M Holdings, including Chemistry and Chemical Engineering graduates.
Liran Maller, Group Director of HR for 2M Holdings said:
“I am delighted with this recognition of our continued efforts to help young people access a career in STEM. As a company working across many communities in the UK, helping young people while closing the skills gap is a vital part of who we are.
The 2M STEM programme will go from strength to strength and we will continue to break down barriers for young people wanting to access a career in the Industry.”
The Chemical Business Association commended 2M’s ‘outstanding contribution’ to the community.
