“We’re so proud to have achieved the gold standard. I’m struck by the recognition of our excellent performance from the assessor, who commented that we have ‘world class performance’ in the management and development of our people.

“At North Star, we place great importance on having an advanced sense of corporate social responsibility – It’s part and parcel of who we are.”

Group chief executive, Angela Lockwood said:

“Our people are at the heart of everything we do. The feedback we have received is fantastic and it’s a massive endorsement of the investment we make and the approach that we take.”
