Our client gap personnel has been celebrating after winning a coveted gold award in the UK’s leading people management standard Investors In People (IIP).

Gold status is widely recognised as an accomplishment of world-class best practice achieved by just 1 per cent of UK organisations.

It is regarded as being the mark of a truly cutting-edge organisation, operating at the very highest levels of people management practice.

To achieve IIP gold status, companies undergo a rigorous assessment and must show exceptional working practices in areas such as people management; leadership; staff involvement and empowerment; work/life balance and health and wellbeing of staff.

Gary Dewhurst, managing director said: “This is great news and is a terrific tribute to the loyalty and dedication of our workforce who work hard in our branches across the country.

“Employees are at the heart of our organisation as we believe an effective, happy workforce is crucial to the success of our company.

“Investing in our staff, their expertise, well-being and practices, is central to the way we work. By developing our people, we continue to be leading edge in our field and way ahead of our competitors.”
