Consistent, effective management

Star’s grown considerably since its last assessment (and we’re still recruiting; view our latest Recruitment Consultant opportunities here); the company’s opened a third office in Manchester, home to its new recruitment team, and has implemented a regional structure and account management methodology, through consultation and collaboration with the company, and Star’s clients and candidates. The IIP Specialist’s report noted that Star’s appointment of excellent, consistently effective managers has enabled the company to maintain its positive and unique culture, and embed improvements in processes to lead, manage and develop people, despite the company’s dramatic growth.  

‘The pride people feel in working for Star is clear’  

The report demonstrates that Star has all the characteristics of a high performance team. Star’s people value the company’s reputation and commitment to do the right things; levels of trust and motivation are high, and challenge is welcomed. The report also commended Star’s succinct business strategy and goals, and the influence of the company’s deeply embedded vision and values on culture and behaviour. Star’s Chairman Tim Webster explains: “We’re united in our commitment to achieve market leadership and we’ll get there by continuing to help people and businesses reach their potential, and that starts at home. We invest a lot of ourselves and our resources to help our people realise their ambitions, then empower them to lead by example and influence their candidates and clients positively. That’s why this recognition means so much to us.”  

‘Star should be extremely proud of their achievement’  

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate Star on their Gold standard. Such a high level of accreditation is the sign of great people management practice, and demonstrates a commitment to staff development and shows an organisation committed to being the very best it can be. Star should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
