We’re delighted to announce that our partner company Teaching Personnel was named Employer of the Year Award: Accredited (250+) at the Investors in People Awards 2021!
Caroline Cheale, Managing Director of Teaching Personnel, commented:
“We are delighted to have won the UK Employer of the Year: Accredited (250+) Award for 2021. What makes this award so special is that it ultimately recognises the hard work and effort across all levels in the business. People are at the heart of everything we do and we strongly believe that learning culture is owned by everyone. This, coupled with a companywide ethos for teamwork, excellence and professional standards means we have created a working environment where people can really thrive and develop”.
As a company, Teaching Personnel experienced many challenges dealing with the pandemic and its string of school closures. Their employees worked extremely hard to keep schools supplied with teaching and support staff, while themselves having to adjust to working from home.
This success in leading their people through this difficult period inspired them to enter the Investors in People Awards. By supporting staff remotely with training, core development programmes and a renewed focus on employee wellbeing, Teaching Personnel helped their employees maintain a sense of forward-motion and morale.
Paul Devoy of Investors in People, commented:
“The Investors in People Awards 2021 was a record breaking year in regards to the number of entries and number of organisations entering, so for every organisation that won, your win will taste a little bit sweeter!
I am so proud of every organisation that entered this year, demonstrating their fantastic commitment to making work better. And as a Winner, Teaching Personnel really stands out amongst the crowd. A huge well done to all involved!”
This award is an endorsement for Teaching Personnel’s employer brand and the company’s commitment to providing staff with full and rewarding careers in recruitment. The company is using everything they’ve learned in the entry process to refine their new appraisal philosophy and make sure that their corporate behaviour always remains aligned with their values.
The Investors in People Awards is all about recognising the organisations and individuals committed to making work better for their people. Teaching Personnel looks forward to defending their crown in 2022!
