Our Best Practice Groups

What they mean for you

We’ve designed our Best Practice Groups in order to build on our successful drop in sessions during 2022. We’ll be encouraging wider engagement across the membership community – supporting individuals with their professional development and helping everyone to build an effective network across a range of different organisations.


What is a Best Practice Group?

A consistent group of like minded individuals who commit to the entire process in 2023 and indeed beyond. Throughout the year we’ll organise a Best Practice Visit and a Best Practice Workshop (time to reflect, evaluate progress and plan ahead). 


Best Practice Group topics:

  • Safety in the workplace
  • Employee wellbeing
  • Investing in organisational culture
  • Recruitment, selection & onboarding
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Praise & recognition
  • Coaching & mentoring
  • Women in Manufacturing
  • Learning & development in the workplace


Each Best Practice Group is led by a highly experienced individual that will timetable 8-9 virtual meetings, organise the x2 yearly site visits and support each individual through the process. 


The lead of our Safety in the Workplace BPG, Michael Buckley, Accrol Group, highlights the benefits of taking part: 

“Great discussion today on our H&S BPG call. Sharing good and bad experiences around managing CDM projects and the role of engineers in the workplace with regards to safety. As the lead of this group it is very rewarding to be able to help other members who are dealing with specific problems. The breadth and depth of experience across the group usually means we are able to provide meaningful support”.


In order to facilitate the visits and the workshops there will be an investment per participant of £500.00 (per Best Practice Group), split over two payments during the year. Signing up to the process gives access to the virtual sessions and the two events.
