PLYMOUTH and South West Co-op has been recognised again as an Investor in People.
In March 2000 the society was successful in gaining recognition and since then have been re-assessed five times.
Douglas Fletcher, Chief Executive, said: "Recognition as an Investor in People is a reflection on everyone employed by the Society and something we can all be proud of ? especially as this review came so soon after our success in the recent Business Challenge Awards."
The chief assessors who visited the society remarked that there's a sense that everyone who works for the society is equal, a real family atmosphere ? something that is rare in an organisation that employs over 2,000 people.
