Finalists demonstrate that social responsibility is not just a policy; it’s driven from the top and rooted in the culture of the whole organisation.

The Awards, which received over 300 entries internationally, celebrate the best people management practices among Investors in People accredited businesses. Winners are announced at a spectacular awards ceremony and dinner on 29 June 2016 at Old Billingsgate, London. Finalists represent the best of the best worldwide.

Cleankill Pest Control, which holds a Silver Investors in People accreditation, was shortlisted for its particular achievements in the area of social responsibility and being ‘green’. The company’s headquarters is in Croydon, Greater London and there are also offices in East Sussex.

The judges said: “It was a fantastic entry outlining a well-rounded and truly innovative approach to CSR. It is evident that you have reaped the rewards of integrating green practices into your business model.”

The awards categories recognise the accredited organisations that have achieved the highest standards. There is a range of Awards categories, focusing on the main elements of what it means to be an Investor in People, from Excellence in Leadership and Management to Excellence in Social Responsibility to Leader of the Year and Best Newcomer. The Awards provide the opportunity to benchmark against high performing organisations globally.

Cleankill Pest Control Managing Director Paul Bates commented “It is a privilege to be shortlisted for this award; a clear indication of the dedication and hard work the team has invested in the business.
