Hobson Prior recognised as excellent investor in its people
Investors in People (IIP) has recognised Hobson Prior for
achieving excellent standards of training, leadership and
employee engagement over the past two years.
After interviewing staff at our Tunbridge Wells and
London offices, IIP reported impressive feedback and a
significant shift towards a more flexible, quality focused
culture within the business.
Hobson Prior has held the prestigious IIP accreditation –
a mark of high performance through people – since 2009.

IIP highlighted three key areas in which Hobson Prior
improved the most:

Training and progression

Employee engagement

IIP praised Hobson Prior’s training for being “tailored,
specific and joined up”. It noted that employees are
given a clear progression pathway, and the organisation
is open to different development routes that allow
individual personalities to shine.

Over the past 12 months, Hobson Prior’s employees
have been heavily involved in agreeing the
organisation’s new branding and set shared values.
Moving towards a more open and engaging culture
has clearly made a great impression on staff. As one
interviewee said, “everyone genuinely feels empowered”.

The report quoted one employee as saying: “I’ve been
given opportunities I might never have got in another

During the interviews, employees described Hobson
Prior’s leaders as “supportive, challenging, appreciative,
honest and collaborative”. IIP observed that “people
clearly trust leaders and have confidence in their
One member of staff explained that leaders are
proactive in addressing Best Companies feedback. Last
year this suggested the company was too numbersdriven, and as a result, monthly reviews now focus
more on quality than statistics. IIP also highlighted the
introduction of the High Performance trip, which rewards
over-achievement of personal targets rather than billing.

“Hobson Prior has a loyal, enthusiastic and committed
workforce,” says IIP’s report. “And it is clear that people
genuinely enjoy working for the organisation.”
Moving forward, the organisation is now exploring how
its shared values will inform its framework for learning,
development and performance management.
Hobson Prior’s Operations Director, Jake Thomas,
commented: “Investment in our employees is at the
heart of Hobson Prior’s approach to growing and
developing our business. The professional, dedicated
and talented people within our company are the driving
force behind our expansion.
We’re proud of our IIP accreditation, which recognises
our efforts to listen and attend to the needs of our
employees. We’ll continue to invest in the development
of all our people and strive to deliver an even better
service to our customers.”
