Covéa Insurance has achieved a gold accreditation from Investors In People (IIP) following a recent assessment, putting the company in the top seven per cent of IIP accredited organisations.

“Having the IIP Gold status is a fantastic independent endorsement of our rating as an employer” said Lisa Meigh, Head of Learning & Development, “The timing of the award is especially significant as we have ambitious development plans and are recruiting for many new job opportunities right across the business.”

Covéa Insurance has recruited over 170 new staff in the last eighteen months and the recruitment drive continues with plans to advertise a further 50 people at its Halifax office before the end of this year.

Lisa added: “IIP principles support the Covéa Insurance vision to put people at the heart of our organisation. It’s fantastic to get this recognition of the phenomenal progress we’ve made in just two years in relation to how we consult, involve, communicate, develop, engage and empower our people to deliver as a business. We will continue to embed best practice principles and invest in our people to maintain our world class accreditation.”
