Silver status means principles, policies, and practices around supporting people are embedded in every corner of the organisation. This is the first time FZUK Ltd has participated in the scheme.

Simon Hyde, CEO of FZUK, said he was thrilled with the silver status.

‘Our team is the heart of the business and are the key to every success that we achieve. I am so proud of all the team by keeping that family feeling that enables the business to stay grounded,’ he said.

‘It’s an honour to be awarded this for the first time, but it is also an opportunity to gain experience as it highlights areas we should be proud of and, like every company, areas for improvement, helping to hold us accountable to our people and our values.’

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, commented: ‘We’d like to congratulate FAUN-Zoeller UK. Silver accreditation on We Invest in People is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places FZUK in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people. Silver is a fantastic achievement and something only 15% of the organisations we assess achieve.’

The assessment happened over a couple of days including a full culture audit and interviews with over 10 team members. The auditors also highlight what an achievement it was for them in gaining silver in their first time participating.

Stewart Gregory, commercial director at FZUK, said: ‘For our team to receive this recognition is a fantastic achievement and I am thrilled by the result. It really underlines our organisations core values. Investing in all our stakeholders, including our staff, clients, suppliers and shareholders, is what we do at FZUK. It is in our DNA.’

Catherine Kings, HR, commented: ‘Achieving silver IIP status is such an amazing achievement for all of us. Our core values identified by the whole team really are at the heart of everything we do. I am so proud to be part of the team who share ambition and a desire for success.

‘”Corporate family” is one of our core values and describes well what it is like to work at FZUK. Supporting, developing, and looking after our people is of high importance to us; therefore, growing and progressing with the IIP scheme is good for employees and exciting.’

FZUK look to have a promising year ahead with more work being done in supporting many of their clients and helping the growth of the business throughout 2022.
