Cramlington’s Bazaar Group celebrates gold Investors in People mark

A soft seating maker has been championed for its commitment to staff.

Bazaar Group has received gold Investors in People (IIP) accreditation.

The accolade is awarded to organisations that demonstrate a clear commitment to supporting and developing employees.

Following an external assessment, which included an anonymous survey completed by 91 per cent of staff, Cramlington-based Bazaar Group has joined the top four per cent of gold standard IIP manufacturing organisations.

Alongside transparent business plans and a supportive, accessible culture, the report highlighted employees feel the company is an excellent place to work, which offers an exciting future.

Helen Svensson, HR director, said: “We are delighted to have achieved gold standard.

“Our IIP journey started six years ago, and the standard has underpinned our growth as a business and supported the creation of a high performing, engaged and motivated team, who live our values every day.

“We continue to develop a people centric culture, which delivers strong business results.

Mark Dolder, Bazaar Group chief executive, added: “Not a day passes without us discussing people and how best to harness their collective and individual talent.”
