CCL UK Achieves Investors in People Silver

22 Sep 2013

Not satisfied with an exemplary Investors in People assessment in October 2012 less than a year later CCL have continued on their assessor’s advice to go for the Investors in People Silver Award which they achieved in August putting them in the top 6% of recognised companies, with the whole of Essex having 16 and the only one in their sector to have done so as well.

MD Steve Wakefield says:

“It’s a wonderful thing to achieve and part of our remarkable journey which wouldn’t be possible without our people and management team .

A number of companies achieve Investors in People accreditation, but only a select few gain Silver status by meeting additional evidence requirements.

We can’t offer a top quality service without motivated staff that feel valued and actually enjoy their work “

Best Practice and Polices Pay off for CCL UK

19 May 2013

CCL are really pleased that following on from a recent Liability control assessment from our insurers we received some amazing feedback saying that the ensuing feedback report reflecting our policies and practice was one of the best they had ever had.

Managing Director Steve Wakefield says “This is part of our on-going commitment to quality good working practice and a testimony to the whole team “.

Mark Brannon, Cert CII Corporate Manager CCV Risk Solutions Limited t/as Just Insurance Brokers says

‘I was extremely pleased, but in no way surprised to receive a call from CCL UK’s insurance company to advise that the AIG Europe Ltd consultant considered them to be one of the best risks he has ever surveyed.

This kind of feedback is rare following such surveys so it should certainly be considered high praise indeed! Having insured Steve, Jackie and the team for a number of years, and following a recent visit to see them, I was in no doubt that they would pass with flying colours.

I was extremely impressed, having seen first-hand, all the work they have put into achieving and renewing the various accreditations and awards they hold, together with their general can do approach to risk management and health and safety, in order to create an excellent working environment.

While some companies can find a survey daunting, CCL UK approached it with their usual positive attitude and had every reason to be confident as there were no formal requirements to come out of the report. Well done to all the team on all the hard work!
