Calon Lan Community Care gained the Investors in People Gold Standard for the first time in 2015 and has retained the Gold accreditation following an audit which took place over 5 days and involved interviewing almost half of the businesses’ 150 employees.
Investors in People Gold represents a commitment to employees and demonstrates a solid foundation of good practice which remains challenging and aspirational for many organisations.
Calon Lan has been monitoring how it treats colleagues since its early days in 2008 with a continuous string of accreditations including; Standard, Silver and Gold on two occasions.
Calon Lan’s MD, Noel Williams said: “Gaining Investors in People and retaining the Gold Standard for a further three years is a fantastic achievement and places Calon Lan among the very best companies to work for in the UK across all market sectors.
“I want Calon Lan to be viewed as a caring and compassionate company to work for.” He continued, “Employees were interviewed by Investors in People as part of the Gold Standard accreditation process. The process revealed that our people are motivated to work for Calon Lan, enjoy working with us, they consider Calon Lan to be a business that looks after its employees and that the business is led by a supportive management team.
Commenting on the award, Michelle Spencer, Registered Manager said “We are so proud of our colleagues in achieving the Gold Investor in People accreditation. We believe that by ensuring our colleagues are valued and recognised for their contribution the services we provide will be second to none.”
