Recognition for investing in its employees

Hardies Property and Constructions Consultants has achieved Investors in People Gold and Investors in Young People accreditations.  

It is one of two organisations within the Scottish consultancy and surveying industry to have achieved such recognition.

Investors in Young People is the only people management standard that focuses on an employer’s recruitment and retention of young people.  Investors in Young People accreditation demonstrates Hardies as an employer of choice for young people and testifies to their effective Youth Employment practices.  Offered to all businesses across Scotland, the award recognises and supports organisations in the employment of young people. 

Gary Ovenstone, Hardies partner in St Andrews said: “We are delighted to achieve both of these prestigious accreditations, which are the result of a great deal of hard work and investment in personnel, and in our working practices over the years."

“Our employees are the very heart of our organisation, and we promote a fully supported working environment.  As a firm we have always done our bit to bring on the next generation in our industry by operating both a student and graduate trainee scheme.  We also offer in-house training for other staff members to ensure they can grown in their roles.”

“We would like to thank and commend Investors in People Scotland for their support and advice to us over the past few years, without which we could not have achieved this level of success.”
