Investors in People


The Considerate Constructors Scheme was delighted to recently celebrate achieving the Investors in People Standard Award.

Representatives from Construction Umbrella Bodies (Holdings) Ltd, the owners of the Scheme, visited the administration office in Ware, Hertfordshire, where the Investors in People plaque was presented to Edward Hardy, Chief Executive, and the rest of the team.

Launched in 1991, Investors in People offers a business improvement tool designed to help businesses develop performance through their people. It provides tailored assessments designed to support organisations in planning, implementing and evaluating effective strategies and is relevant for organisations of all sizes and sectors. The Investors in People Standard Award demonstrates how the Scheme is committed to its staff as well as raising business performance to an even higher level.

Michael Ankers, Chairman of Construction Umbrella Bodies (Holdings) Ltd commented:

“The Considerate Constructors Scheme has done extremely well in achieving this Award from Investors in People. I know from past experience that it is not an easy standard to achieve but one that is, in my opinion, an excellent implementation for a growing business. I wholeheartedly believe the Scheme will live up to Investors in People expectations and commend them for their efforts.”

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive said:

“We are very proud of this achievement and aim to work towards the next goals for Investors in People. We believe strongly in investing in our staff as well as the business and I thank the team for making the Considerate Constructors Scheme the organisation it is today.”

The Scheme will now work towards a Bronze Award in their next assessment in 3 years time.
