This recognition builds on a successful year for one of the UK’s leading technology solutions providers, having been ranked 1st in the prestigious ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For’ list 2018 in February.
Since 1991, the Investors in People accreditation has been the ‘sign of excellence, a great employer and an outperforming place to work’.
Chess prides itself on being a great place to work, where happy people make for happy customers, and that’s why it’s delighted to have been recognised until 2021, having held that title for the past 18 years.
Kate Wood, Director of Culture at Chess, said: “We are so proud that yet again Chess have achieved our Investors in People accreditation. It is in our Blueprint to ensure that everyone maximises their potential and feels valued and cared for - Investors in People have recognised that. At Chess we will continue to employ good people and help them grow to be great.”
Chess People are encouraged to maximise their potential and grow their career through personal development programmes, monthly 1-2-1s with their leaders and by increasing their knowledge with specialist courses and qualifications.
They also have access to many benefits including Breakfast Club, lunchtime yoga, free organic fruit and duvet days, and are supported through their Chess career by a team of Cultural Architects.
The Investors in People standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.
