websters, the tax, legal and accountancy specialists which has an office in Lynn, are celebrating achieving a gold standard accreditation from Investors in People (IIP)
websters, which is based in Cambridge, gained the IIP Standard in 2005 and silver status in June 2011.
In the UK, Investors in People is the most successful framework for business improvement through people. A Gold Standard Accreditation is the highest level of recognition that organisations can achieve. It is only given to those firms which are able to demonstrate a degree of excellence in the way they develop and support their staff and only seven per cent of accredited organisations currently hold this prestigious status.
Gary Eves, manager of the accounts and business tax team and who is based at the websters Lynn office, said: “I am delighted with the IIP award which reflects the fantastic work undertaken by the whole team and highlights that the investment made by the company in our staff is helping them meet the high standards that we set.”
Andrew Webster, CEO, is also thrilled with the award: “It shows how the websters’s core values are embedded into our business and our commitment to every single member of staff.”
The report stated that: “The business has a notably open culture distinguished by mutual respect and shared values. People at all levels are valued and encouraged to both learn and progress.”
Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate websters on their Gold standard. Such a high level of accreditation is the sign of great people management practice, and demonstrates a commitment to staff development and shows an organisation committed to being the very best it can be. websters should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
