A Matlock–based charity has been named one of the UK’s top employers after being given a prestigious industry award.

YHA England and Wales, in Dimple Road, has been awarded the Investors in People (IiP) Gold standard for its continued improvement in performance and the development of staff.

The award of IiP Gold standard follows the naming of YHA as one of the East Midlands’ best employers in the regional final of the National Apprenticeship Awards and National Training Awards 2012.

Chief executive Caroline White commented: “We are thrilled to receive the Gold award for Investors in People.

“It’s a great result and it’s really pleasing that staff see YHA as a great place to work.

“It is an achievement on the part of all of YHA and just confirms what our members and customers say – that our people help make us really special.”
