Foster Denovo shortlisted

Financial adviser firm Foster Denovo has been shortlisted in the Silver Employer of the Year 50-249 category at the Investors in People Awards 2018.

The Awards process is led by a team of professionals and celebrates the best people management practices amongst Investors in People accredited businesses.

Foster Denovo was awarded the IIP Silver accreditation earlier this year.

The firm told IFA magazine that it set itself apart from competitors through its unique culture and focus on embedding its core values across every aspect of the business, from attraction and recruitment through to performance management and recognition.

It added that it had also impressed the panel through initiatives such as its employee led group “The Voice”, which has been developed to support and maximise inclusivity within the business, giving employees a true sense of involvement. The group represents a blend of age, gender, location and seniority of staff members and provides a vehicle to enhance communications, take pulse surveys and promote inclusivity.

Louise Blair, Head of HR at Foster Denovo said: “It is a privilege to be shortlisted for this award; a clear indication of the dedication and hard work the team has invested in the business. Our employee led group “The Voice” has seen huge growth since it was set up last year and we want to thank the teams for their involvement and engagement so far”.

Helen Lovett, Chief Operating Officer at Foster Denovo, added: “We were extremely proud to receive our silver accreditation from IIP earlier this year and we’re delighted to have now been shortlisted for this award. Our aim is to ensure that our people feel they are an integral part of the engaged journey and this shortlist is a great endorsement of the approach we are taking and the focus that this receives in Foster Denovo.”
