We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have retained the prestigious Investors in People Gold Award for the 4th year in succession.

The internationally recognised Investors in People scheme signposts businesses that are delivering continuous improvements, rewarding and acknowledging high performance as well as leading and inspiring people and creating sustainable success. Only 17% of the business that were accredited received Gold.

The assessors credited us on our organisational change programme success and how it has made the company a better place to work lead by professional leadership experts. Feedback also noted positive work culture and communication, touching on how our CEO Charles Hartwell is known for his passion, enthusiasm and championing the worth and value of his team.

In the past two years, we’ve increased our workforce by a fifth despite an industrywide recruitment crisis, in our bid to becoming the world’s leading provider of official veterinary controls. Significant changes have been made to support the growing team with a larger focus on health, safety and wellbeing, implemented by a new leadership structure and an increasing emphasis on employee engagement.

We are delighted to have retained our Investors in People Gold Award and are proud of the recognition of our commitment to team wellbeing and engagement which is our utmost priority. Our people are our greatest asset, and as we grow, we have plans in place to continue creating a culture that champions happiness, diversity and communication.
