We are delighted to announce that Investors in People has awarded Claremont the Investors in People Platinum standard.
Investors in People recognises those companies who demonstrate the very highest standards in people management, from recruiting, through to supporting, developing, managing and recognising its employees. The IIP standards are internationally recognised accreditations held by 15,000 organisations across the world.
Claremont had held the IIP Gold standard since 2011, the accreditation having been reassessed every three years. This year, however, we have achieved the very highest standard available, IIP Platinum, an accreditation which is awarded to only the top 2% of the companies assessed. To achieve the Platinum standard, organisations must demonstrate ‘high performance’ in at least seven of the nine assessment indicators, covering all areas of people management including Leading & Inspiring People, Empowering & Involving People, Delivering Continuous Improvement & Creating Sustainable Success.
It’s all about the people
As an IT Managed Services company, Claremont’s assets are its people. Our Delivery Excellence is entirely down to the fantastic performance of our team who are at the top of their game, produce excellent work and live the Claremont values every day in providing the very best service to our customers. New customers come to us as a result of our impressive reputation and credentials; they stay with us because they receive outstanding service and commitment from our team, which is second to none.
Claremont is a special place. Our people are supported and encouraged to develop within the company and are given the freedom to be innovative and push the boundaries. Claremont’s culture is at the heart of everything we do, and this feeds through to our people who thrive in our One Team environment. Everyone is involved in, and contributes to, the success of the company, and this is recognised and celebrated.
As well as looking after our own people, one of our key values is Social Responsibility. Claremont is involved in supporting the local community in many ways, from our regular monthly payday donations to charities chosen by our team and fundraising activities, to the giving of time – with the whole company participating (pre Covid) in a community volunteer project.
The Journey Continues
Claremont has been on an amazing journey over the years and this external recognition of our great achievements in the form of the IIP Platinum accreditation is the icing on the cake. We would not enjoy success without our fantastic team and we would like to thank them for always giving their all to be the very best they can be. Thanks also to our IIP specialist, Graeme Mills, who has supported us brilliantly throughout our IIP story so far.
We will build on our success and look forward to continuing to provide the very best support to our amazing people in the future.
Well done Claremont!
