Michelmores is awarded highest accreditation from STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners)

Michelmores has been awarded STEP Platinum Employer Partner accreditation, the highest of three accreditation levels awarded under STEP's Employer Partnership Programme.

Platinum accreditation is testament to the strength of the policies, practices and structures that Michelmores have in place to support its growing Private Wealth offering.

To achieve Platinum accreditation, the organisation must show that the importance of Learning & Development is championed throughout the organisation, as well as demonstrating a positive work and learning environment.

STEP was particularly impressed with the strong learning and development culture at Michelmores. Employer Partnerships Officer Laura Keith states:

"At Michelmores, staff across all levels are encouraged to share issues and findings and discuss topics. There is a fantastic recognition and reward culture encouraging and acknowledging staff in their professional development. It sounds like an excellent organisation to work for and it is a great addition to STEP’s Employer Partnership Programme."

Sam Jamieson, Head of Learning & Talent Development at Michelmores said:

"Our prestigious award from STEP validates the quality of the learning opportunities and support that we offer our professionals to be the best they can be in their chosen career".
