We’re celebrating being awarded the Gold accreditation in the Investors in People (IiP) framework, just one of only four hospitality businesses in the UK to be awarded Gold status!
The accreditation recognises CJUK’s commitment to creating an empowering workplace our staff and positive corporate social responsibility within our community.
Katie Mellor, director of CJUK, said: “I’m incredibly proud of the whole business and all we do together. At CJUK and across the whole Cummins Mellor Group we pride ourselves on creating better workplaces not only for our team but for our chefs and candidates. This award is justification of the highest standards, the dedication and the pride we all share together as a team. The award is so well deserved and great recognition for us all.”
CJUK is part of the Lancashire based Cummins Mellor Group, who has held IiP status since 1998, but this is the first time the Group has been awarded Gold status. The achievement means we’re now one of only seven businesses in Lancashire and one of only eight recruitment businesses in the UK to be awarded Gold status.
Carol Davidson, who has been the Investors in People assessor for the Cummins Mellor Group for almost a decade, said: “As a business they have a clear vision of creating better workplaces and a safer society and a strong set of core values that are embedded and integral to how they operate on a day to day basis.
The Group has demonstrated good practice in a number of areas with a strong leadership team at the helm who are supportive and ensure that their people are empowered to be innovative in their roles, giving recognition and rewarding individuals and teams for the contribution they make to the success of the business.
A positive approach had been taken with regards to corporate social responsibility with strong relationships formed within their local and the wider community which supports the vision of the company.”
Since 1991 Investors in People has set the standard for better people management. The internationally recognised accreditation is held by 14,000 organisations across the world.
