To obtain the silver standard, the assessor worked with staff throughout the company and found that Prater, through its people, has worked hard to embed its values and behaviours across the business at all levels, recording high levels of trust and understanding of the business ambitions.

Gavin Hamblett, managing director at Prater, said: “We are delighted to have once again received this important accolade.

“Prater is committed to driving business performance through its biggest asset – our people. We want our employees to feel valued and inspired to work for us so that we attract, develop and retain quality, committed individuals. We know that our clients, in turn, will benefit from this ethos, so we are proud that everyone’s efforts have been reflected with this award.”
