Madgex are incredibly proud to announce we have just been presented with the highly coveted Investors in People Silver Standard award. The award represents a huge achievement for us and reflects all the hard work that goes into making Madgex a fantastic place to work.
Madgex were first accredited by Investors in People in 2008. Once an organisation has achieved the Core Standard they are encouraged to choose a level (bronze, silver or gold) to better themselves by demonstrating further evidence to meet tougher criteria.
Last year saw Madgex successfully awarded with the Bronze Standard accreditation, after such positive feedback from the assessor we decided to use 2013 to push ourselves even further and apply for the Silver Standard.
‘Only 2.82 % of Investors in People accredited organisations achieve Silver status and I’m really proud to say that Madgex is one of the prestigious few. We’ve worked very hard over the last 12 months to engage with staff on our Strategy development and it’s really paid off resulting in us being in an incredibly strong market position. We’ve always prided ourselves on offering a good flexible work/life balance approach to our staff and it’s great that we’ve been recognised for going above and beyond in such a key area.’ - Hanna Smith, HR Director
The Investors in People Standard is a framework of best practice, awarded to well-run organisations that meet set criteria in areas including learning and development, leadership skills as well as recognition and reward . The review process involved numerous members of the Madgex team being picked at random for an interview with the assessor, in which they were asked how they felt about the Company, the Madgex approach to work-life balance and each person’s professional future. The assessment saw the motivation and enthusiasm of the Madgex team shine through, acknowledging the hard work and dedication of the company.
Every person in the Madgex team has worked incredibly hard to make Madgex a profitable and successful company. We are extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished and being recognised by Investors in People for our work is a fantastic achievement.
In a bid to make Madgex a truly great place to work we plan to continue our process of improving and evolving and will most certainly be applying for entry into the Gold Standard next year. We will be constantly reviewing how we operate and look after our people to make sure we remain a great company to work for, a benefit which speaks for itself.
