Managing agency Rendall & Rittner has scooped a Platinum Investors in People award, demonstrating commitment to high performance through good people management.
The company, which currently employs 360 members of office staff and over 2,000 on-site staff at more than 60,000 residential properties throughout the UK, moved up the scale from its Gold standard, first awarded in 2012.
It originally achieved Investors in People accreditation in 2006, and since then has continued to develop its people management practices in line with the company’s growth.
Agency director Catherine Riva says: “Without the hard work and effort from all our employees - from our apprentices to team managers and cleaners to lead executives - we would not have been able to attain a Platinum standard. This great news provides external verification from an international awarding body that our commitment to continuously improve and achieve our goals of being a lead employer in the industry.”
The company was recognised for a series of initiatives including the visibility of its senior management team that provide ‘hands on’ support, and care for colleagues; improvements of its benefits including enhanced maternity package, sabbaticals and the option to buy and sell annual leave, and coffee mornings where all staff can meet founders Duncan Rendall and Matt Rittner, and work on company values.
It was also recognised as Platinum for its competitive pay packages, bonuses and support to achieve professional qualifications as a powerful motivator for being a member of staff, with directors really recognising great work at every level.
