Ridgeons Ltd has proudly held Investors in People status since 1998 and in April 2015 we were awarded the Gold standard for the prestigious accolade.
The Gold Investor in People standard is recognised worldwide as a sign of excellence and is only awarded to businesses that champion best practice and high performance through its people.
Following confidential interviews with over 70 colleagues, including one-on-one and group interviews, Ridgeons was successful in meeting 180 out of a possible 196 evidence criteria.
Assessors at Investors in People praised Ridgeons for its colleague engagement, corporate social responsibility efforts, culture, ethos and company-wide transparency, as well as its quantity and quality of training, including coaching, mentoring and talent management.
Ian Northen, CEO at Ridgeons, says: “People and relationships are hugely important to us and are what keep our business growing. Whether that’s a positive relationship between colleagues and customers or colleague and line manager, we are successful because we provide platforms for our colleagues to succeed and develop their career.
