November 8th, 2021, Dublin, Ireland,– Linesight, a global consultancy firm, today announced that it has become the first company in the world to be awarded the RISE (Retain, Invest, Sustain and Engage) Corporate Support Scheme badge from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
The RISE Corporate Support Scheme is a validation framework that recognises firms who provide global best practices in supporting candidates through their Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) for MRICS or AssocRICS qualifications.
Central to the process of designing and developing the principles for such a framework was the use of Linesight’s own Quantity Surveyor(QS) Chartership Pathway as the prototype for the scheme.
This badge is part of the wider new RISE Framework at RICS. The RISE framework offers services and products to construction industry firms with the aim of supporting their workforce in becoming chartered surveyors.
In order to receive the RISE Corporate Support Scheme badge companies must abide by four clear principles and requirements of the scheme:
“We are honoured to be the recipient of this prestigious award.

said Paul Boylan, Group CEO, Linesight.
