Executive recruitment and consultancy firm Rockpools has this week been awarded Investors in People status, following a successful assessment with its sister company Pinnacle.
Investors in People is a framework used by over 30,000 UK organisations to assist them in achieve success through their people. This is the first time Rockpools has been awarded this prestigious accolade.
Nev Wilkinson, Rockpools’ managing partner, said: “Attaining the universally-recognised quality standard, Investors in People, is a huge achievement for Rockpools and a real tribute to all our team. Despite being less than three years old, Rockpools is already setting the benchmark for service excellence with an ethos that’s both values-driven and people-orientated – this award helps confirm that.”
In awarding the Investor in People status to both Pinnacle and Rockpools, assessors highlighted the strength of the firm’s culture in relation to the alignment of its business and individual values. The review report stated that the firm “has a clear and successful business strategy based upon outstanding commitment to both clients and employees. This is underpinned by strong shared values of empowerment, social responsibility and innovation.”
Rockpools works with organisations to attract, develop and manage their top teams. The consultancy offers a range of innovative e-enabled services including recruitment, interim management, selection and assessment, coaching, mentoring, leadership, ethical and good governance, top team development and strategic HR advice and partnerships. Rockpools is also a gold card member of the Employers’ Forum on Disability.
Rockpools has a number of sister companies operating within the public sector under the umbrella of Pinnacle Regeneration Group, including: Pinnacle, a leading provider of community solutions through consultancy, housing management and facilities management; Regenter, an investor in housing and community-based PFI projects in conjunction with John Laing; and Asset Management, an cutting-edge investor in public and affordable housing in the UK and Europe.
