The jubilant PHARMExcel team celebrates its achievements as a finalist at the Investors in People Awards 2022, London.
Investors in People (IIP) is a globally recognised standard for people management, with the philosophy of making work life better in companies, to deliver an engaged and high performing workforce.
Since its inception in 1991, IIP has accredited more than 50,000 organisations in 66 countries around the world which makes it the global benchmark when it comes to people management: so, we’re delighted to receive this global recognition.
We’re an award-winning Contract Research Organisation (CRO) with a mission to become the leading European CRO partner in early phase clinical trials for academic and emerging biotech organisations.
Yvanne Enever, CEO at PHARMExcel, said “We recognised that to become the ‘CRO of choice’ we needed to be agile and responsive to our clients’ needs and therefore, we took a deep look at our internal culture. We know how vital our people are when it comes to delivering outstanding results, especially during the recent challenging times.”
Open communication, knowledge sharing, learning and well-being are keystones to the organisation’s culture and this commitment comes from the top down.
We’ve already gained Silver standard accreditation which is testament to how much we care about our staff. But we don’t want to stop there.
Dani Harrison, Head of HR & Well-Being at PHARMExcel, said: “We are working hard to introduce a vibrant and positive work culture that enables all staff to continuously learn and develop, access relevant mental and physical well-being support and gain the professional and personal recognition they deserve.”
Addressing employee engagement is important for an expanding business like PHARMExcel.
We understand the value of investing in effective programmes to develop better employee skills, internal communication, and feedback. We also believe that it is more than just training workshops and technical skills that make a good workforce. We are passionate about developing a workplace that supports learning (not just training), whole-person development (not just technical skills) and team thinking and collaboration (as well as individual performance).
Happy and productive employees who care about the quality of their work go a long way in developing the business. And when employees are engaged, great things can happen!
Achieving finalist of Employer of the Year Award reflects our desire to continue to improve. We will continue to evolve our investment and commitment to our people and realise PHARMExcel’s goals together.
