Following our employer awards picked up in 2018, we were thrilled to have recently been named Employer of the Year by Investors in People!
The Investors in People Awards 2019 was the biggest and most competitive year to date and Blue Apple were shortlisted with six other organisations for the Employer of the Year (The Standard 250+) an award for businesses with over 250 employees.
The awards ceremony took place in Old Billingsgate, London with a Las Vegas theme full of glitz and glamour. The evening was hosted by comedian Russell Kane who kept the crowd of 750 entertained with his high energy comedy and compering skills.
When we asked IIP why they chose Blue Apple as the winners of this prestigious award we were told that it was partly down to our score in the assessment process. Along with an IIP assessor, we surveyed members of the Blue Apple team from across the business, spending time out at our sites with our HR manager as well as spending a day at Head Office interviewing the team. They were particularly impressed with the fact that we link all our HR initiatives to our company values, as well as putting our team at the heart of what we do — not just focusing on the business aspects.
