The East Midlands based not-for-profit first achieved platinum in 2021, and while over 50,000 organisations have been assessed by Investors in People, only 1 per cent succeed with platinum.

Nicky said: “This shows just how committed we are to high values of leadership and people management over a long period of time, and that we’re caring and supportive of our colleagues to be the best they can be.”

The assessment took place over the last few months and included an in-depth review of Futures and its staff, including one on one and group interviews with colleagues across various departments, observations in meetings and staff surveys.

We strive to have an inclusive, engaging and empowering culture at Futures and this award recognises that’s what we’re doing as well as the amazing contribution our team members make."
