We are particularly pleased to have been awarded Gold status as it publicly recognises the value we place on the members of our organisation and moves us into only a handful of companies that have attained this status.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 7 January 2013
AES International adds yet another accolade to its ever-expanding list, with its recently attained Investors in People (IiP) Gold status, placing the financial services firm in the top 3% of all IiP-accredited companies. Having first achieved Investors in People status in 2009, AES has continued to build on its success achieving Gold status first time in its following assessment this November past.
Launched in 1991, and administered by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, Investors in People is the UK’s leading people management standard. The organisation specialises in transforming business performance through people, and provides a number of evidence requirements that each company must satisfy in order to achieve accreditation. To satisfy the requirements for Gold status, AES had to go "beyond the standard" and satisfy over 165 individual evidence requirements.
AES Chief Operating Officer John Viney commented, "as a growing organisation we realise that our success is founded on the quality of our people and the level to which we support them in achieving their personal and career goals. We focus on excellence in the recruitment, development and performance of all our team and are delighted that this has been recognised by the Gold standard. As we seek to bring positive change to financial services our people will be more important than ever in transforming the international marketplace."
The IiP recognition follows a recent flurry of awards for AES, having also recently been named by the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 2012 as the fastest-growing UK financial services firm for the second consecutive year. The company’s swift ascent has additionally moved them into the 41st position in the FT Adviser Top 100 financial services firms, as turnover has continued to grow year-on-year.
CEO Sam Instone said, "Among the many recent accolades for our performance and success in the financial services marketplace, we are particularly pleased to have been awarded Gold status as it publicly recognises the value we place on the members of our organisation and moves us into only a handful of companies that have attained this status. The ethos of Investors in People fits perfectly with the values of our organisation as the report comments, 'if the spirit of Investors in People resides anywhere, it resides within AES International.'"
