Ink provides a comprehensive training programme to the sales staff and has a substantial training budget. For the commercial members, Ink offers the opportunity to be certified by the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management (ISMM). In addition to training, sales people are encouraged to travel on a regular basis to visit existing clients and create new business opportunities. Ink also encourages staff to visit other offices, in order to learn from one another and create better working relationships. Language courses in Mandarin and Spanish have been offered in the past.
OlyINKpics - To celebrate the 2012 London Olympics, in early July the entire sales and commercial departments dedicated their mornings to worthwhile community organisations and charities of their choice. In the afternoon, everyone met in Regents Park and were divided into cross-departmental teams, where they competed in different athletic events -volleyball, relay, long jump, etc. The event was well-received and was an excellent opportunity for those who don't normally work together, to get to know one another better.
HappINKness - At the end of 2011, 121 of Ink’s employees wrote about what made them happy in the “HappINKness” book. The book showed what a fun and creative business Ink had become. Dreams - Dreams has proven a successful way of finding out what inspires and motivates Ink's employees. Typagora12 - Typagora provided an open forum for the management team to speak openly about where Ink is and share their visions for where it is going in the next three years. From the breakout sessions, brainstorming and presenting, attendees were able to come up with ideas and solutions for challenges that the businesses faces and may face in the future.
