Ukash has announced it has received recognition for the investment it is making in its people with the award of the Investors in People standard.
Ukash has been on an ambitious growth path, extending the range of payment solutions it offers to empower consumers online and give businesses the opportunity to extend their service offering.
The award of the Investors in People standard follows a number of other successes by the company in 2014, including its fourth consecutive Queen’s Award as one of Britain’s best exporters and its inclusion in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200.
“2014 continues to be a landmark year for Ukash as we not only grow our established online payments business, but break into new markets with the launch of our Travel Money card,” said CEO of Ukash, David Hunter. “None of this success could be achieved without a team of focused and committed individuals, and we recognise the need to provide the support and tools to keep them motivated as well as help them develop their skills. We are, therefore, delighted to have won the Investors in People standard acknowledging this investment.”
Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “Achieving the Investors in People standard is something that any organisation should be truly proud of. It is the sign of a company which is truly committed to good people management practice and we’d like to congratulate Ukash on its achievement.”
