LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tech21, the leaders in impact protection for mobile devices and the UK’s number one case brand, today joined an elite band of companies around the world after being awarded a coveted Investors in People Silver accreditation.
The British firm, based in Twickenham, London, is one of the world’s fastest growing technology companies, producing stylish yet protective cases for the latest devices and tablets.
The internationally recognised Investors in People Silver award is held by just 14,000 organisations across 75 different countries and celebrates what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results.
Tech21 excelled in nine key assessment criteria including workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures, only possible by the views and opinions of the firm’s UK staff, which tech21 continue to promote through ‘employee voice’ programmes.
The accreditation is the latest accolade for tech21, having recently been named in the Sunday Times ‘Fast Track 100’ of British tech companies.
Investors in People is the global standard for people management and its sought-after stamp of approval is said to be the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to sustainability.
One such example which impressed the judges was tech21’s recent move to sponsor the preservation and display of the work of renowned inventor Trevor Baylis - whose house sits opposite the company’s headquarters on Eel Pie Island in Twickenham.
Tech21’s founder Jason Roberts said he was incredibly proud of the entire team for gaining the prestigious accreditation. He said: “This award is testament to the incredible, innovative work of every single person across the company.
“One of the pillars of our business is that we strongly believe that things can always improve and get better, and we apply this principle to our products, our workplace and our contribution to society as a whole.
John Doughty, CEO of tech21 added “We’re delighted to have achieved this high standard and now the next step will be working towards achieving the award for all our team members through a global employee programme and attaining the gold accreditation in the coming years as tech21 continues to grow.”
