A WORCESTER accountancy firm has received national recognition for the way it supports, leads and develops its employees.
Hayward Wright Accountancy Group has been awarded the Investors in People accreditation after demonstrating its commitment to the management and performance of its staff.
During a 15-month process, eight employees from Hayward Wright took part in interviews and assessments with the financial specialists bringing in a new appraisal process, targets and personal development plans.
Managing director, Alistair Hayward-Wright, said: “To be awarded Investors in People status is fantastic news and it concludes a long process where we’ve been able to demonstrate how passionate we are about caring for and developing our employees.
“Our new-look appraisal process is a massive part of our refreshed approach. It allows us to identify hidden talents in our employees, but also lets members of the team make an impact in other parts of the business such as marketing and business development.
“Aside from attracting and nurturing new talent, the whole Investors in People process has also seen us becoming more active in seeking feedback from staff on the business – whilst also gaining insight from our clients.
“It’s a proud milestone for us especially as we are celebrating our tenth anniversary this year.”
