Gold Investors in People are delighted to award real estate asset management and operational partner Ringley Group with We Invest in People, gold accreditation. Gold accreditation means that we have got the policies in place but, more than that, it means everyone from CEO to apprentice takes ownership of making them come to life.
This is an enormous achievement given how wonderfully diverse our teams are! We demonstrated that we all pull together and are a values-led organisation.
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We would like to congratulate Ringley Group. Gold accreditation on We Invest in People is a fantastic effort for any organisation and places Ringley in fine company with a host of organizations that understand the value of people.”
To which I responded, “Receiving We Invest in People Gold Accreditation is a testament to Ringley’s employee-centric work culture. This is a major focus for us, as we have bolstered our team with some exceptional new hires over the last year and at several levels. This is yet another reason why we are one of the leading partners of choice for leading businesses in residential real estate.”
“We believe that the success of your organisation begins and ends with people. If we make work better for everyone, we make work better for every organisation. And if we do that, we make society stronger, healthier, and happier.”
Here are some quotes from the feedback received:
''overwhelmingly people feel cared for, structured and supported, there was a clear recognition that Ringley is a good place to work, with a huge number of channels to raise suggestions to improve themselves and how we work''
''The organisation demonstrated a significant level of trust - managers are seen as passionate and highly supportive with vast knowledge and a culture of going over and above, and in taking time to support individuals."
