Lovell, which is rebuilding parts of Raffles, was awarded Investors in People Silver (IiP) status.

The firm, which employs 230 staff across Cumbria, the north west and north Wales, is now in the top 2.9 per cent of organisations which have achieved IiP accreditation in the UK.

The assessors interviewed staff across the company focusing on areas including development and training and how Lovell helps staff to develop their professional skills and enhance the service provided to customers.

Nigel Yates, regional director for the north west, said it was a ‘superb achievement’.

“This underlines our team’s hard work and commitment to driving the business forward and achieving the highest standards of service for our customers.”

Lovell has built more than 225 homes at Raffles and is working on a 39 home development at Brookside.

Chris Jones, head of operations at idg, the Investors in People Centre for the north of England, said it was a fantastic achievement for Lovell.

“I would like to congratulate the team on their commitment to continuous improvement,” he said.

“As the Investors in People Centre for the north of England, idg is committed to working with organisations to raise standards and improve performance through people.”
