Ei Group achieves Investors in People Gold Award

Ei Group, the UK’s largest pub company, has achieved the highly prestigious Investors in People Gold Award, which is given to organisations who demonstrate excellence in developing and supporting their employees.

Following a rigorous re-assessment process, Ei Group now joins a select list of accredited organisations across the UK that have achieved the Gold standard. The standard is only awarded to businesses who can actively demonstrate they operate at the very highest levels of people management practice, aligned to business strategy, ethos and values.

The assessment identified the positive impact that Ei Group’s broad-ranging people strategy is having across the organisation and highlighted a considerable number of strengths across key indicators, including:

· Shared understanding of the company’s direction and priorities
· Embedded and applied Group values
· Pride and passion for quality and customer service
· People believe that Ei Group is a great place to work

Simon Townsend, Chief Executive Officer at Ei Group, said, “This is a considerable achievement for the Group given the level of change that we have undergone as a business since the last assessment in 2016 and especially given that the required performance standards have been made tougher in the intervening period.

“We’re committed to providing exciting and challenging careers at Ei Group, which incorporates the personal development of individuals throughout their time with the company. This award is a clear validation of all the hard work that has been put in by teams across the business.”
