Views from the flipside

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded ‘Investors in People’ Gold Status on our very first attempt. Joining a select number of UK companies, the announcement comes after an assessment by Investors in People Wales, and is in recognition of the exceptional management of LDF employees - just 7% of accredited businesses achieve the Gold status overall.

Investors in People nationally recognise the importance of nurturing talent and maintaining a motivated and positive working environment, and we have been commended on the high level of employee development. Of the 25 members of the management team, 22 have progressed from junior roles within the business.

The process looked at all aspects of the business and evaluated LDF’s corporate social responsibility, management techniques and reward policies in order to reach the gold status. In particular the report issued after the assessment praised our open plan working, the approachable senior management, and the businesses dedicated approach to its learning culture.

Commenting on our work environment, Investors in People wrote: “Your investment in your people is unique, you have a special ingredient that has resulted in a huge ‘feel good factor’, high performance and employee pride in being part of a successful business.”

“Reward and recognition strategies go well beyond legal requirements and demonstrate a real understanding of what motivates people.”

“You have created an architecture that allows you to build and maintain a talent rich pipeline.”

We are definitely proud to be a part of it!

What our customers say

We could not have been happier. Banks as usual were a nightmare - they took over six weeks to eventually refuse for vague reasons unexplained. White Oak UK were professional, helpful, friendly, and best of all, fast.
