Leading developer’s East Anglia region awarded Gold Investors in People Accreditation
Norwich-based partnership homes developer Lovell has been awarded the prestigious ‘We invest in people’ gold accreditation.
Gold accreditation is only awarded to 17% of Investors in People’s accredited organisations, and means that Lovell is a great employer as well as being an outperforming place to work.
The leading housebuilder directly employs high-skilled people at every stage of a project, as well as investing in raw talent, such as apprentices and management trainees, to build the next generation of Lovell employees.
Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage staff effectively, and highlighting a company’s success in ensuring learning opportunities are available to everyone.
Commenting on the award, Simon Medler, regional managing director for Lovell, said: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this gold accreditation by Investors in People in recognition of our people. At Lovell our employees are extremely important to us, and I’m very proud to see that the emphasis we place on supporting our staff has been recognised. It’s our people who really make the difference – they bring innovation, commitment and expertise to everything they do.”
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate the East Anglia region of Lovell. Gold accreditation on ‘We invest in people’ is a fantastic effort for any organisation, and places Lovell in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”
The East Anglia region of Lovell currently has projects in Holt, Fakenham, King’s Lynn, Newton St Faith, Wymondham and Gislingham, with a further four developments expected to launch this year.
