KBS Corporate has received its Investors in People accreditation following a thorough assessment.
As a management framework for high performance through people, the prestigious Investors in People accreditation is recognised across the world as a mark of excellence.
Andrew Melbourne, Director at KBS Corporate commented on the award, “Everyone at KBS Corporate is delighted that we have achieved our Investors In people accreditation at the first time of asking. As our most valuable asset, we place great emphasis on the happiness, development and welfare of our employees and the Investors in People status encompasses everything that we have been striving towards. The high quality of service that we are committed to offering to our clients is a direct reflection on our staff.”
Over the last 12 months the company has undertaken a number of initiatives, which are all geared towards expansion of our customer base, increasing brand awareness and improving services to clients. Ultimately this activity has led to KBS Corporate achieving a 59% growth in turnover for the financial yearend 2015.
Within the last 12 months we have increased our workforce by 40% in response to a growing client base in addition to an increase in overall productivity through staff training. The buyer identification & research team has since doubled in order to provide a more comprehensive buyer reach whilst also seeing an increase in the amount of client liaison personnel and client document writers, all aimed at further improving service levels for the increasing client base.
Growth over the last 12 months has been driven by a 33% increase in transactional activity over the previous year, and the completion of a number of high profile company sales. This growth can be attributed to significant investment in both people and technology; which KBS corporate places a great emphasis on.
We anticipate that further growth will be fuelled by an increasing market share, driven by operating three distinct brands which provides a full service offering to the company sales market. To facilitate this growth the company is planning to double its office space within the next six months as well as expanding its operations in the centre of Manchester. The additional office space will allow the company to add to its expanding workforce and increase marketing expenditure which will aid future growth.
The success achieved by the company has increased its reputation within the industry and as a result has successfully been awarded several accolades for its achievements. The additional profits generated over the last 12 month period has been reinvested with 13 members of staff joining training schemes to further enhance their skill sets and has allowed the company to take on a full time apprentice for the first time.
