Norwich-based housing developer Lovell has been officially declared a great place to work after the company retained its Investors in People (IIP) top Gold standard award.
The announcement safeguards the Thorpe Road firm’s membership of the elite 14 per cent of organisations with IIP accreditation to have achieved the Gold level award. The Gold standard is the highest award bestowed by IIP, the leading accreditation system for business improvement through people management.
An in-depth assessment by IIP praised the Norwich firm’s leadership, people management, approach to recruitment, communications with its staff and the strong relationships the company builds with stakeholders and communities. Developer Lovell designs, builds and sells homes across East Anglia as well as undertaking large-scale housing regeneration and refurbishment projects.
Paul Devoy, head of Investors in People, says: “We’d like to congratulate Lovell. Investors in People Gold accreditation is the sign of a great employer, a top-performing place to work and a clear commitment to success. Lovell should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
Lovell regional managing director Simon Medler is delighted by this continuing recognition for the company’s long-term investment in its workforce. He comments: “Our commitment to developing and supporting our staff reflects the crucial role they play in our continuing success and how much we value them. It is thanks to their hard work, talent and expertise that we are able to deliver a high-performing service for our clients. Having first achieved the IIP Gold award three years ago, to have it once again confirmed indicates the emphasis we put on ensuring that Lovell remains a company which operates to the highest standards in the way we manage and treat our staff – as well as in our relationships with our customers and partners.”
