Hamilton Fraser has recently announced its commitment to work towards achieving Investors in People, the most successful framework for business improvement through people.
In working towards Investors in People recognition, the organisation has signed up to reviewing how effective it is at planning, implementing and evaluating its strategies, as well as making a commitment to continuous improvement.
Commenting on its commitment, Eddie Hooker, Managing Director said:
“Since setting up Hamilton Fraser Insurance in 1996 we have always placed great importance on the wellbeing and progression of our staff. It is a cliché but our staff really are our most important asset.
“Our company values and culture has always helped to set us apart from our competitors, but in these financially troubling times we felt we needed to manage our growth more effectively and further improve our performance, therefore we turned to the Investors in People (IIP) programme.
“Using the principles of IIP we have been able to re-focus our attention and plan our strategic direction for 2012 and beyond. The whole process has provided our business with a new energy and most importantly the changes are starting to benefit our people, our customers and ultimately our bottom line.”
John Telfer, Managing Director of Investors in People South, said:
“I am delighted that Hamilton Fraser has committed to Investors in People and am confident that they will see real business benefits as a result.
“Research shows that working with Investors in People really enhances business performance, bringing increased employee engagement and benefit to the bottom line.
“I hope that Hamilton Fraser’s commitment will encourage other organisations in their sector to sharpen their competitive edge by choosing to work with the Investors in People framework.”
