Investors in People Gold

Whittingham Riddell has been awarded the Gold Investor in People standard. Only 3% of UK organisations have been recognised with Gold Standard, making this a fantastic achievement for the firm.

During the assessment, Whittingham Riddell was described by the assessors as being ‘cohesive, professional and purposeful.’ Praised for our strong work ethic and team spirit, the assessment found that the employees liked being part of the firm and felt a sense of pride about the work they do.

Our work-life balance arrangements were reported as a positive aspect of life in the firm, as well as the strong corporate values of mutual respect and trust which the assessors felt underpinned all firm activity.

Opportunities for personal development and training, as well as the involvement of all employees in the strategic direction of the firm through initiatives such as a staff liaison group, were commended.

The firm, which has strong local community ties, was also praised on its wide array of charitable and education initiatives, which the assessors felt, were strongly rooted in the firm’s business strategy.
