Access2Funding awarded silver status by Investors in People

Posted: 27th October 2021

Chamber member Access2Funding has become one of just 15% of businesses to have been awarded silver status from Investors in People.

The UK’s fastest growing research and development (R&D) tax specialist has been working towards the prestigious award to cement the business as an employer of choice, and provide teams with the best support possible when it comes to personal development.

Investors in People help companies, leaders and employees work together to create better, more productive workplaces by recognising organisations that are investing in their teams and advising on best practises to further improve.

Silver accreditation means that the right principles are in place but more than that, it means people and leaders are making active efforts to make sure that there’s real consistency and everyone in the organisation are feeling the effect.

Dawn Coker, CEO at Access2Funding said: “We embarked on working towards Investors in People after we experienced large-scale businesss growth over the last 18 months and recognised the need to put our people first. Achieving silver not only further cements our place as a leader in the field but is also a huge testament to the hard work of the team.”

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate Access2Funding. Silver accreditation is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places Access2Funding in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”

Access2Funding is the fastest growing R&D tax specialist in the UK. It has so far claimed back over £46m of R&D for businesses and has offices across the country, from the Scottish Highlands down to Kent. Investors in People has awarded 15,000 organisations across 75 countries.
