Qubic Tax are celebrating five years as an accredited Investors in People firm.

Set up by Chartered Accountant David Graham in 2008, Qubic were first accredited with the Investors in People Silver standard in July 2012 and were further awarded with the Gold accolade in July 2015.

Investors in People is the UK's leading accreditation for business improvement through people management, and provides a wealth of resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow, with a focus on good people making great business.

Gold is one of the highest levels of accreditation that can be achieved and of those who hold Investors in People, only 16% achieve Gold status.

Figures from Investors in People show that there are only around 10 other firms within Financial Services in the UK* who hold the Gold accreditation.

Commenting on Qubic’s Investors in People success, Director David Graham said:

“We are delighted to be celebrating five years as an Investor in People firm. Holding the Gold award places Qubic in the top 1% of UK tax and accountancy firms for people management, and as a small firm we are very proud of this achievement.

Ultimately, improvement and growth through our people is absolutely key to the performance of the business and by involving staff in our core strategies and supporting continual learning and development, we generate great commitment and motivation in return.

Our next milestone will be celebrating our tenth anniversary in January, and it’s quite unbelievable looking back at how far we’ve come with our people management practices”.

Over the past few years Qubic have continued to recruit and develop new roles, and have supported a culture of continual learning and development. The firm rolls out formal training to a quarter of its workforce, with staff currently studying towards a range of professional qualifications including CTA (Chartered Tax Adviser) and AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians), both of which staff have recently had exam success in.

Qubic’s staff have also previously studied a range of other professional qualifications including ACA (Association of Chartered Accountants), ATT (Association of Taxation Technicians) and STEP (The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) as well as other formal qualifications including a Business & Administration Diploma and professional qualifications from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Since starting the Investors in People Journey, the firm has also raised over £35,000 for its chosen charities (Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Great North Children’s Hospital) through a greater commitment to CSR related activities. Fundraising activities have included a charity relay walk from Newcastle to London and an Apprentice style challenge at Spitalfields Market.

The firm recently held its summer team building day which saw staff participate in a number of competitive outdoor challenges including segways, quadbikes, blind folded 4x4 driving, hovercrafts, laser tag and a team game of human table football.

The Investors in People standard is reviewed every 3 years and Qubic hope to build on their commitment to the framework at their next review.
