Access Point is delighted to announce that we have been recognised by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority for its commitment to creating a fair and equitable working environment for its employees at ‘Aspiring Employer Level’ Status.
Metro Mayor Steve Rotherham’s inaugural Fair Employment Charter was issued on Tuesday 22nd November, with Access Point among the first 50 employers to be awarded ‘Aspiring Employer Level’ status.
The charter celebrates local businesses and organisations that are recognising the importance of good employee relationships and their responsibility to create a safe, fair and mutually beneficial environment for everyone within the company.
Since forming in 1997, Access Point has always considered itself a family-run company rather than a corporate business and has strived to create a fun, dynamic atmosphere inside the office and out.
Our ethos has always been to encourage an employee to further their own skill set and personal career development with initiatives and incentives, with the aspiration that as an employee grows so does the company.
David Robertshaw, CEO of Access Point said:
“Every company needs to constantly improve otherwise we stagnate and get left behind. We recognise that our ‘uniqueness’ comes from the people we employ; the front line, speaking to our clients and support behind the scenes making sure it all runs smoothly. We have survived at times but mostly flourished, which is all down to the people we employ.
We spend a lot of time looking at how we as a company can go the extra mile for our team, always looking to improve and making it a great place to work. Recognition for this is a reward to all of the team, so we are over the moon to be one of the first on the ‘Fair Employment Charter’. This award continues to push us forward, to keep investing, to keep paying a decent salary and to keep the workplace safe and a great place to come into every day.”
Steve Rotherham, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “When thousands of hard-working families across our region are struggling to make ends meet, there’s never been a more important time for businesses to step up and commit to investing in their workforce.
The charter is about highlighting and promoting good employers who do the right things – and we know that there are plenty of them in our region.”
He added: “I want our area to be known as the best place in the country to live, work, or run a business – and the more businesses we can encourage to join us on this journey, the faster we can make that ambition a reality.”
