We are delighted to have achieved Investors in People silver accreditation for the second time running. Investors in People is a global non-profit organisation that evaluates the extent to which members of an organisation – from the managing partner to the newest recruit – understand and embrace the values, culture, processes and objectives of the company. Through rigorous assessment, participating companies are benchmarked against the best performing companies.
We were commended for our “dedication to making sure all staff can be the best they can be” and ranked as advanced in the following areas:
- Creating transparency and trust
- Operating in line with our values
- Empowering people
- Adopting a culture of recognition
- Deploying the right people at the right time
- Creating a culture of continuous improvement
- Embracing change
- Focusing on the future
Investing in our people is important to us. We are passionate about excellence, so we recruit people who stand out from the crowd and are dedicated to their continued professional development. Most notably, the rollout of our new RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) programme has resulted in an 85% pass rate, our robust apprenticeship scheme continues to attract and nurture new talent, and we have supported or sponsored a number of team members through bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees and PhDs.
Achieving this accreditation highlights what makes us a stand-out employer but also what makes us a stand-out consultancy. By prioritising the progression and performance of our team, we are able to resource our projects with highly skilled, knowledgeable people. This has proven invaluable in ensuring that our team is always ahead of the curve and that all members embrace and uphold calfordseaden’s values and objectives.
