Investors in People Award

for the 10th year

Ashley House plc is delighted to announce that it has retained its Investors in People accreditation. The award demonstrates the Company’s commitment to leading, supporting and managing our people in their quest to achieve the Company’s goals.

People are at the very heart of our philosophy, as it is our staff that promote and deliver our services. We are proud to have been the holders of the Investors in People Certificate of Recognition since June 2007 and are committed to supporting the training and lifelong learning programmes of staff and their requirements to fulfil Continuing Professional Development. For us, an informed and professionally motivated workforce is vital to our business.

We strive to be a people focused business allowing our staff to train, develop and grow with us. We employ 34 staff and continue to enjoy very high levels of staff retention. The positive social objectives that the Company has aids both this and recruitment.

Our 2016 annual staff survey once again indicated a high level of staff engagement which is partly credited to the positive social impact the Company creates.

A couple of quotes from that survey were as follows:

“[I enjoy] working for a company that makes a positive difference to vulnerable people’s lives”

“The social impact of everything we do”.

In March 2016 the Company launched a staff share incentive scheme. Registered with HMRC, the scheme rewards staff for loyalty by providing initially two shares for every one share purchased. The take up has been in excess of 50% and is seen by many as a valuable part of an employee’s remuneration package. The share incentive scheme has been shortlisted for the Best Share Plan at the Proshare Annual Awards.
