the staff and Trustees are absolutely delighted with this award,"
said James Cretney, HorseWorld's Chief Executive. "The whole
Investors in People process has had a large impact on the way we
work and the way we manage our staff - all for the better. It also
means that as an organisation that is clear about its objectives
and has the support of its staff, we can deliver our services more

there is more and more demand for our work and counting the pennies

commitment we have to our work and the people who make it all happen."
