14 May 2014

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Investors in People Gold standard, joining the top 7% of accredited organisations across the UK who believe in realising the potential of their people.

We employ over 600 people across the company and manage nearly £3bn on behalf of charities and donors worldwide. Our mission is to motivate society to give ever more effectively, transforming lives and communities around the world. This award recognises our excellence in people management, and our commitment to developing leaders and encouraging employee engagement.

Investors in People is the UK's leading accreditation for business improvement through people management, and provides a wealth of resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow, with a focus on good people making great business.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate the Charities Aid Foundation on their Gold standard. Such a high level of accreditation is the sign of great people management practice, and demonstrates a commitment to staff development and shows an organisation committed to being the very best it can be. The Charities Aid Foundation should be extremely proud of their achievement.”

Commenting on the award, John Low, Chief Executive of CAF said: “Achieving the Investors in People Gold award is a great achievement for CAF. The award is testament to the hard work, team effort and input from colleagues across the organisation. 

“The award demonstrates our ambition to invest in our employees to achieve exceptional results and create a culture where staff are equipped, recognised and rewarded. Our commitment to supporting our employees also ensures that we can continue to offer the best possible service to the charities and donors we work with.”
