Specialist Infusion Company Achieves Gold Standard in National Business “Kitemark”

CME Medical is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the Investors in People Gold Standard Award. This high standard, which is the benchmark of good people management practice, is accredited to only 16% of UK employers with an average of 10% of these companies achieving the coveted Gold Accreditation.

The award was given following a comprehensive audit by Investor in People assessors who evaluated the company’s performance and approach to its people through ten key areas within three different sections: Plan, Do and Review.

Luan Mann, HRD Associate Director at CME Medical comments: ‘We are so pleased to have received this prestigious award at the highest level. We are committed to improving staff development and providing a workplace where employees are given the encouragement to succeed and to be fully engaged and involved in the business.  Investors in People is one of the leading accreditations for business improvement through people in the country and it’s an honour to have it against our name.”

The Investor in People Gold Award comes after a great 2014 for CME Medical which was awarded the Skills for Health Quality Mark for its technical training programme and it’s re-accreditation by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) across its medical device product training range for the fifth year in a row.

John Carrington, Managing Director of CME Medical adds: “We work in an industry where standards are very important to ensure customers are confident about the efficiency and safety of our products and services. So, for us it’s fantastic to have achieved this accolade which in turn reflects one of the keys to our success as a company: our dedicated, talented workforce. It’s important that we continue to assess our investment in our people and we remain committed to championing best practice in people management as we grow the business.”

Investors in People is designed to help organisations and their people to realise potential, enhance performance and meet goals.  With the new accreditation to their name, CME Medical will continue to strive to provide a high standard of performance throughout the next year.
