IIP Gold


Personnel Checks is part of the Cummins Mellor Group which was initially accredited as an Investors in People organisation in 1998 and was one of the first independent recruitment businesses to achieve the Standard. When the framework changed in late 2015 to award different levels of IIP Standard, the journey to gold began!

Going for IIP Gold

Following a rigorous assessment process which involved one to one staff interviews, surveys and evidence reviews, in June 2017, we were extremely proud to achieve Investors in People Gold status.

This meant we were one of 7 organisations in Lancashire and one of only 3 safeguarding businesses in the UK to achieve IIP Gold with version 6 of the standard. 

Here are just some of the comments detailed in our official Investors in People Assessment Report...




Managing Director Michelle Mellor said; "I’m incredibly proud of the whole business and all we do together. This award is justification of the highest standards, the dedication and the pride we all share together as a team. The award is so well deserved and great recognition for us all." 

Here's why some of the Personnel Checks safeguarding team think we achieved Gold...



Investors in People assessor Carol Davidson said; “My association with the Cummins Mellor Group as their Investors in People Assessor has spanned almost a decade and I was delighted that they have achieved the Gold Award against the more challenging Standard. As a business they have a clear vision of creating better workplaces and a safer society and a strong set of core values that are embedded and integral to how they operate on a day to day basis."
