Announcing a Best Companies accreditation success story

9th July 2019

The IRIS FMP group has just secured Best Companies accreditation at the first attempt.

Engaged employees are more motivated and productive. When employees are engaged the workplace becomes full of positivity.  Research suggests that a critical mass of engaged employees outperform their competition.

And this is non more prevalent than within IRIS FMP. The group was formed through a private equity backed MBO in November 2016. At launch it set out its stall to achieve Times Top 100 accreditation. The Best Companies accreditation, from the people behind Times Top 100, marks another step towards that goal. Furthermore, in late 2018 the group achieved Investors in People accreditation, again at the first attempt.

Justin Cottrell, IRIS FMP’s CEO commented: ‘One of core values is to develop, attract and retain enthusiastic achievers. Our employees are engaged with the IRIS FMP business, and take pride in what they do. They’re part of the IRIS FMP family, connected to each of their colleagues and to the aims of our business. This faith in each other drives better working relationships and collaboration at every level. This has driven the success of the organisation. Above all, the award recognises that engagement. ’

Gary Webb, IRIS FMP’s Marketing and Communications Director, led the Best Companies and the Investors in People accreditations and commented: ‘Both awards recognise and celebrate great workplace engagement. The awards demonstrate to our clients, partners, investors and employees that IRIS FMP understands the importance of workplace engagement. It also reinforces that we  genuinely value our people, attracting and retaining top talent’.

Best Companies – IRIS FMP. One to Watch

IRIS FMP achieved Best Companies accreditation in June 2019, achieving ‘Ones to Watch’ status. The ‘Ones to Watch’ accreditation is a special status awarded to organisations where workplace engagement shows promising signs for the future.

Achieving Ones to Watch accreditation takes a BCI score of at least 600 and reflects organisations with ‘good’ levels of workplace engagement.

Over the last three years IRIS FMP has achieved a raft of accreditations and awards. The company firmly believe powerful engagement with employees has been the key to that success
