Russam GMS Goes for Gold winning new Investors in People award

Russam GMS one of the leading providers of interim managers has been awarded the prestigious Investors in People Gold Award in recognition of its continued commitment to develop, motivate, value and support its employees.

Russam GMS is celebrating 30 years in business this year and was praised for achieving a high level of long-term business success in a very competitive marketplace. This success was attributed to the professionalism, expertise and exceptional client service and satisfaction levels of everyone in the business.

Investors in People highlighted the company’s very clear and well published set of organisational core values, pointing out that everyone in the company lives the values in everything they do. The company was praised for investing in its people in every way, with the outcome being a happy, experienced, qualified and extremely capable team that delivers exceptional customer service to clients.

Charles Russam, Chairman of Russam GMS comments: “We are extremely proud we have been awarded the Investors in People Gold award and full credit goes to everyone in the company for achieving this accolade. We are a small team and sincerely believe that this recognition will contribute significantly to the on-going success of the business – especially in these challenging economic times.”

Investors in People stated that Russam’s strengths lay in its & lsquo;inspirational leadership’ at senior level its & lsquo;sound financial systems’, the & lsquo;continuous development of management capabilities’ and the importance the company places on & lsquo;succession planning’ to prepare employees to take on additional roles and responsibilities.

The company was also praised for keeping its team fully aware of the strategic and tactical business aims and objectives, especially given the fact the team is split between offices and has a number of home workers. It achieves this is through its highly effective communication strategy and the & lsquo;Away Days’ it hosts at least three times a year, which are treated as employee learning and development opportunities. Coaching and mentoring is also something that happens throughout the company as a matter of course.

Charles Russam adds: “We place a lot of emphasis on learning, training and development and this is something that the Investors in People assessor points out is exceptional in our business compared with much larger companies with much bigger budgets.”

Russam GMS achieved Investors in People recognition in 2006 and since then it has worked hard within the Investors in People framework to meet key objectives, including gaining re-recognised status in April 2012 and now achieving this Gold Award.
