Thursday, 11 January 2018
Ethical debt purchaser 1st Credit has been awarded GOLD accreditation against the Investors in People Standard, demonstrating its commitment to high performance through good people management. 

1st Credit, part of global credit management group Intrum, is an award-winning debt purchaser, known for taking a highly ethical approach to debt collection – in particular for treating customers fairly. It is the only debt purchase company to have achieved the maximum rating in the independent Investor in Customers (IIC) assessment for four consecutive years.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. Investors in People enables organisations to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate 1st Credit. Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. 1st Credit should be extremely proud of their achievement.”

Commenting on the award, Chris Collins, 1st Credit HR & Conduct Risk Director, said: “I am thrilled that 1st Credit has been awarded Investors in People Gold in what is our very first assessment. This award recognises the strength of 1st Credit as a ‘people’ organisation and emphasises our excellent team spirit, as well as our commitment to developing employees at all levels within the business”.

Eddie Nott, Managing Director – UK, added: “We are all extremely proud to have achieved the IIP Gold Standard award. While there is always more to achieve, this accreditation demonstrates our desire to invest in our people for the benefit of our customers”.
