For the third year running, Fairbairn Private Bank has been granted the maximum ‘Three Star Status’ in the Best Companies business accreditation system. With offices in the Isle of Man, Jersey and London, Fairbairn Private Bank became one of only 84 organisations across the entire UK to receive this accolade. Launched in 2006, the Best Companies Accreditation has been established to acknowledge corporate excellence in the workplace. This elite accreditation takes the format of a Michelin style star system with company performance awarded one star for first class, two stars for outstanding and three stars for extraordinary.

Greg Horton, managing director of Fairbairn Private Bank, explained: “The accreditation focuses on workplace engagement and aims to show the level to which employees feel personally involved with their organisation. This accolade illustrates the commitment and loyalty of our staff who provide exceptional service to our clients. We appreciate the key role they play in our business success and I am proud of our team’s dedication and outstanding contribution to the company and to the community in which it operates.”

This year Fairbairn Private Bank has excelled, once again, and for the third time has been granted the prestigious three star rating, reflecting extraordinary workplace and workforce support and development. The accreditation is based on feedback from the largest employee survey ever undertaken in the UK and this year embraced a record 919 organisations, of which 158 organisations achieved Two Star Status and 256 were awarded One Star Status.

Fairbairn Private Bank recently became the first British offshore island bank to expand onshore with an office in London, and it is also the first, and only, offshore island based company to receive the Best Companies Accreditation maximum Three Star Status.
