It's a Gold Investment

Staff at Rational UK, the leading provider in hot food preparation cooking systems are celebrating their Gold accreditation recently awarded by Investors in People. Only 17% of Investors in People accredited organisations achieve Gold.

A Gold accreditation means that Rational UK have all the required policies in place but more than that, it means everyone within the business take ownership for making them come to life.

Rational the leading provider in hot food preparation equipment, would not be what it is today without its employees. Every employee is encouraged to act as an independent entrepreneur in the company – working with dedication, responsibility and in the interest of the entire company. This approach seems to be on point, as 97% of their UK employees said that they are proud to be working for Rational.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate Rational UK. Gold accreditation on We invest in people is a fantastic effort for any organisation, and places Rational UK in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.

Commenting on the award, Helen Varley, People Manager, RATIONAL UK, said: “Here at Rational we are delighted to receive this prestigious award. The UK team consists of 60 experienced and professional individuals, who have had a part to play in the assessment; from taking part in a survey, attending a leadership context meeting presenting an overview of the business and evidence in relation to the performance indicators, to attending one-to-one assessor interviews.”

The Rational guiding principles and values permeate every aspect of its culture and ways of working. Providing maximum customer benefit has always been the company’s main mission. This is not limited to their external customers but also to colleagues and friends that they work alongside daily.
