North West-based outsourcing provider Premex Services has been awarded the highest possible standard from Investors In People, placing it amongst the cream of UK employers.
Premex, incorporating Premex Insight, achieved the IIP Gold Award, after its assessors recognised the company's commitment to staff and customers, praising the business in particular for its excellent people practices, innovation, social conscience and team spirit; only 600 organisations have achieved this mark from more than 22,500 that have been assessed.
"Premex was first awarded IIP status in 2006 and since its last review the business has grown substantially, increasing its turnover and profit margins and is now under new ownership having become part of the Examworks family of companies in May 2011," explains Mike Smith, HR Director at Premex Group. "The business now employs over 360 staff and to have achieved this award given all that has happened at the company in the past six years is very pleasing indeed".
"This is very important to Premex as an employer, and to its staff and customers," adds Mike. "We know the value of having a mark like IIP but to be acknowledged as one of the best in the country should be a source of genuine pride to everyone that works here."
