The Award celebrates the best people management practices amongst Investors In People accredited businesses. The 2018 winners were announced at a spectacular award ceremony and dinner at the Roundhouse, London.
True Bearing was the first Independent Financial Planners in the UK to achieve the Gold Standard Investors in People award. We have held this status for 7 consecutive years. This was the first year we had entered the Investors In People Awards. It was a great opportunity for us to benchmark against high performing organisations, not just within the UK but on a global scale.
During 2018 we celebrated 15 years in business, and we have seen continuous growth. We now employ 64 staff at our Euxton offices and have further plans for growth in 2019.
Our Senior Management has concentrated their efforts on developing our existing employees. They have also recruiting talented staff to join the team in order to future proof the business.
