Ogilvie Fleet is hoping to win new business and attract more talented employees after becoming only the second organisation in the vehicle leasing and fleet management sector to achieve Investors in People Gold Standard.
Almost 11,500 organisations in the UK have achieved Investors in People accreditation, but only 1,577 have made it to Gold status by meeting additional evidence requirements.
Investors in People ‘Gold’ represents a true commitment to employees and demonstrates a solid foundation of good practice which remains challenging and aspirational for many organisations.
Additionally, Ogilvie Fleet, which has almost 14,000 leased cars and vans on its books and a further 1,600 on fleet management, achieved a two-star accreditation in the annual ‘Best Companies to Work For’ national survey that measures and acknowledges excellence in workplace engagement.
Ogilvie Fleet managing director, Gordon Stephen, said: “It is a fantastic achievement. Like the customer service awards we keep winning and the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ accolade, it makes me feel exceptionally proud of our company and tells me that we have managers and staff who are working together to provide excellence within our business.
“It is impossible to be a successful company offering a top quality service without motivated and settled staff that feel valued and actually enjoy their work. I have always felt that we have a special company and this is further proof that we are getting things right most of the time.”
