LV= wins Employee Engagement Strategy of the Year

Press release: 15/03/2012

LV= has won the Employee Engagement Strategy of the Year award at the UK Customer Satisfaction Awards held by the Institute of Customer Service. The award was won by LV='s life and pensions' customer service team for its 2011 employee engagement strategy.

The awards are open to members of the Institute of Customer Service and entries are judged on criteria such as the reasoning behind the implementation of the strategy; and whether the relationship between management and staff was positive.

The judges were impressed with a number of initiatives undertaken by LV=, including the creation of a night designed to recognise LV='s star performers; and a scheme developed to encourage staff to develop their technical skills.

Max Clarke, LV= Head of Customer Experience, Life and Pensions said: "We are really pleased to have won this award and it’s great to have the team's hard work recognised. LV= is committed to supporting its staff and developing their skills as we believe that happy and engaged staff are our biggest asset. By empowering and rewarding our employees we hope to retain highly skilled members of staff who in turn provide our customers with an excellent quality of service."

About LV=

LV= employs over 5000 people and serves around five million customers with a range of financial products. We are the UK’s largest friendly society and a leading financial mutual.

When we started in 1843 our goal was to give financial security to more than just a privileged few and for many decades we were most commonly associated with providing a method of saving to people of modest means. Today we follow a similar purpose, helping people to protect and provide for the things they love, although on a much larger scale and through a wide range of financial services including insurance, investment and retirement products.

We offer our services direct to consumers, as well as through IFAs and brokers, and through strategic partnerships with organisations such as ASDA, Nationwide Building Society and a range of trades unions.
