Demonstrating its commitment to driving performance through good people management, CR Worldwide is delighted to have retained the Investors in People Gold accreditation.

Headquartered in Stratford-Upon-Avon, UK, CR Worldwide (formerly Corporate Rewards), first achieved the Investors in People Gold accreditation three years ago. Having just been reassessed against a new, more rigorous framework, the 16-year-old company will retain the certification until 2021.

Investors in People (IiP) is a Community Interest Company – its objective is to raise the standard of people leadership and organisations in order to benefit companies, people and communities. The IiP Standard is a business improvement tool designed to advance an organisation’s performance through its employees. It helps organisations to improve performance and realise objectives through the management and development of their people.

“We are thrilled to be accredited with the Gold standard for Investors in People again. This further confirms the commitment we make to our people through learning and development, culture and leadership.”

Commenting on the organisation’s achievement, Investors in People Assessor Susan Long said: “I have never seen such a cohesive demonstration of the ‘golden thread’ running from company objectives through to individual objectives and a shared understanding of what success looks like in an organisation.”

She added: “CR Worldwide are to be congratulated on achieving a Gold level award in their assessment, with consistently good practice evidenced across IiP’s three Principles – Plan, Do, Review”

In response to the certification, David Gould, Chief Executive Officer, CR Worldwide, said: “We are thrilled to be accredited with the Gold standard for Investors in People again. This further confirms the commitment we make to our people through learning and development, culture and leadership.”

Of all the companies that strive for an Investors in People accreditation, only 15% achieve the Gold mark of excellence, with the majority – 58%, still at the Standard level.
