Network Member Awarded Gold By Investors in People

Monday 15 April 2013

Local estate agent Webbers, Relocation Agent Network member with 16 offices covering North Devon, West Somerset, Exmoor and Cornwall, has been awarded the much sought-after Gold Standard by the Investors in People organisation.

Not content with acquiring the Investors in People’s ‘Standard status’ like the majority of applicant companies, Webbers chose to meet an additional 126 business requirements, which are then judged by Investors in People to be either a Bronze, Silver or Gold Standard - with the local agent achieving the top status!

As a member of Relocation Agent Network, Webbers is part of an organisation of around 600 independent estate agents across England, Scotland and Wales. Relocation Agent Network is highly selective in its membership, basing its criteria on quality of service, local knowledge and professionalism. With each member being specially invited to join, Webbers’ recent Investors in People accolade demonstrates the high calibre of agent that makes up the Network.

Investors in People is the UK’s leading people management standard, which specialises in transforming business performance through the people that work for them. This accolade not only highlights Webbers’ ability to provide a fantastic place to work, but also shows the emphasis that they place on training their staff in the importance of customer service. Indeed, the agency’s last customer care statistics reported that 97% of customers would recommend Webbers to friends or family.

Richard Tucker, Relocation Agent Network’s Managing Director, said of the achievement, “We are delighted to see Webbers rewarded for the support and training they provide their employees. This accolade demonstrates that our Relocation Agent Network members really are leading the industry in terms of business best practices and – in our opinion – customer service.”
