CliniMed Group companies, CliniMed Ltd and SecuriCare (Medical) Ltd, have been named the winners of the first Investors in People Employer of the Year Award (50-249 employees category).

Sue Bull said of the accolade, “That we reached the finals of these important awards, organised by Investors in People, speaks volumes about our desire to fully embrace with the IIP concepts such as excellence in leadership, attracting and retaining talented people and supporting quality and continuous improvement, all within a highly competitive marketplace. It was tough competition and we are honoured to have received this inspirational Award. It speaks volumes about us as a business and absolutely reflects the culture and commitment we have towards our people and our customers, who are at the heart of what we do.”
Neil Freeman, the Managing Director of both companies is delighted with the achievement, “I couldn’t be more proud of what we have accomplished in gaining formal recognition that what we do, works.
