Portico, a corporate receptionist services company, has been awarded the Investors in People Gold status. Over 21, 000 companies have an IIP accreditation but only 1.3% of companies achieve gold recognition.
Investors in People highlighted the fantastic people culture, how the Portico culture fits with clients and effective leadership as some of the points that contributed to this recognition.
Commenting on this achievement, Sue Carroll, Head of People Development at Portico said:
“Achieving Gold status is a reflection of how hard we continue to work on behalf of our employees and clients to ensure Portico remains a great place to work. It also provides an assurance that our front of house management remains consistently exceptional.
“Our people are our greatest asset and we are passionate about creating a culture where they are nurtured, developed and challenged to be the best that they can be - working with the Investors in People framework allows us to do this.”
Vincent Dolan, Investors in People assessor added:
“Portico is an organisation that takes people management and leadership very seriously; certainly setting the standards for this industry in terms of marrying sound people management and customer service.”
