The award, part of the ‘We Invest in People’ accreditation, is only achieved by 2% of organisations who apply. Investors in People is a standard for people management and offers accreditation to organisations that adhere to its ethics.
There are four levels of the award, standard, silver, gold and platinum. Within each of those there are four levels of ‘maturity’, which include developed, established, advanced and high performing. Each level is more progressive and challenging than the next and each award is a fantastic recognition in its own right.
Wingate managing director Ben Clarke said:
Achieving the platinum accreditation for ‘We Invest in People’ is a fantastic accolade and endorses our view that if you create a culture where everyone supports each other and knows their role in delivering exceptional service, special things can happen.
This is never more relevant than in the current challenging times.
Investors in People head Paul Devoy, in awarding the accreditation said:
Platinum accreditation on ‘We Invest in People’ is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places Wingate in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.
Wingate Listed in the ‘Top 100 Financial Advisers’ for a 2nd Year in a Row
We are delighted to announce that Wingate has been listed as one of the ‘Top 100 Financial Advice Firms’ for the 2nd year in a row. This substantial recognition is published in the FTAdviser which is one of the most recognised accreditations in our industry.
The achievement is a direct reflection on the level of dedication our team places on helping employers deliver highly valued benefit propositions for their employees alongside health, wellbeing and financial education.
We were one of the highest placed firms specialising in Employee Benefits. Typically, recognition had been given to much larger companies. However, over the last few years the FTAdviser has changed the way in which the list is curated, paving the way for more specialist companies to gain a place on this esteemed shortlist.
Upon accepting the award, Ben Clarke (Managing Director at Wingate) said:
“At Wingate we strive to improve our services year on year so that our clients continue to benefit from our care and commitment. We are very proud of the work our employee benefits team deliver and the results that are being seen by our clients.”
