We are pleased to announce that Carrington West have been awarded the GOLD standard accreditation with Investors in People!

Only a small percentage of organisations obtain the GOLD standard and we are extremely proud of our growth as a business which is testament to the dedication and hard work of all of our employees.

Carrington West first gained accreditation in 2015 and have proactively embraced Investors in People to help achieve focus and drive improvement in key aspects of our ambition to be the employer of choice. We have been maintaining and building on the strengths identified during our first assessment 3 years ago. Doubling the headcount has resulted in double the number of people who feel valued and supported by the leadership team. We work hard to ensure our employees see and appreciate the opportunities for career progression, additional earnings and personal development.

3 years on, we have now been benchmarked as the 11th best Employment Agency on the IIP accreditation across the whole of the UK. We received ‘High Performing’ in most categories during the internal IIP assessment survey. We will be reviewing all areas of the IIP assessment 2018, to ensure we maintain and continue to improve to ensure we are offering our employees the standard they deserve.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate Carrington West, Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. Carrington West should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
