Nedgroup Trust in the Channel Islands has achieved reaccreditation as a STEP Platinum Employer Partner for the sixth year running. A platinum accreditation, the highest achievable level, is awarded to organisations that meet a range of learning and development standards, including a positive environment to both work and grow in, and evidencing that learning and development is championed across the business.

Dan Bisson, managing director at Nedgroup Trust, said: “Receiving the platinum accreditation is a great achievement and a testament to the strength of the learning and development opportunities we offer to support our staff. It represents a lot of hard work and commitment throughout the business.

“In an ever-changing world it is important we maintain high standards and continue to develop training programmes that can help navigate new challenges.”

Janine Mayor, business partner – learning and development at Nedgroup Trust continued: “We are committed to assisting in the development of our staff to ensure we all have the necessary skills to support the business to fulfil its goals.”

Jenni Hutchinson, head of employer partnerships for STEP, added: “This is a very well deserved accreditation, at the highest level, for Nedgroup Trust, which offers a vast array of learning opportunities for staff at all levels to support its focus on technical excellence and strict adherence to Continuous Professional Development requirements. It is also pleasing to note a strong emphasis on staff engagement where expectations are set out clearly, success is rewarded and recognised, and multiple opportunities exist to participate in activities designed to benefit the wider community. The culture of support and achievement is to be commended and we, at STEP, are delighted to be working with Nedgroup Trust for a further three years and beyond.”
