Telford Company gets GOLD

Recruitment experts at a Telford company are celebrating after achieving a coveted accreditation from a national organisation.

The team from Prince Personnel, on Central Park, has received the gold award from Investors in People – ranking them in the top seven per cent of organisations recognised across the UK.

Maria Sandford, who set up the business in 2003 with her brother Mike Prince, said they were absolutely delighted with the recognition which was testimony to the team’s commitment to delivering the very best customer service.

“We began working with Investors in People in 2005 and their system helped us to put some great practices in place and helped to shape our business.

“We have successfully retained our accreditation every two years ever since, and this year decided to aim for the gold rating.

“The aim was to achieve the standard by the end of this year, but we have surpassed even our own expectations by qualifying at our very first attempt.

“I’m so proud of our entire team as the gold award is such a highly-renowned standard that it really sets us apart from our competitors.”

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results.

Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.

It enables organisations to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.

Head of Investors in People, Paul Devoy, said: “We’d like to congratulate Prince Personnel – Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outstanding place to work and a clear commitment to success.”
