  • Investors in People Gold

    Launched in 1991, Investors in People is the UK's leading people management standard, specialising in transforming business performance through people. Participation in the accreditation process allows us to continuously improve and show how much we value our staff.

    Hft has held the Investors in People accolade since 2002 and, in 2014 underwent reassessment that resulted in us achieving the Investors in People Gold accreditation - the highest level of accreditation.

    Robert Longley-Cook, our Chief Executive, says: “I'm very proud of Hft for achieving IiP Gold accreditation. This is a fantastic acknowledgement of the commitment and professionalism of all our staff.  I was also delighted that the assessors highlighted the impact of the Fusion Model in driving us to be One Hft”.
