Midas are among only 2% of UK organisations to have achieved the Gold standard, a prestigious accreditation recognised across the world as a mark of excellence.
Presented to acknowledge "world class people management and development", the Gold Award accreditation followed a rigorous assessment that included lengthy interviews with staff across the business.
Managing Director Martin Gilbey said revealed the Gold Award was the fulfilment of a long-held dream for Midas.
"When I first started with Midas 12 years, my first project involved looking after the careers of our staff. Looking after and investing in our people is something I am genuinely passionate about.
"So it’s a huge honour to join what is a very exclusive club across all industries but particularly within the industrial cladding sector, where we truly are leaders in the field.
"Within an industry notorious for contracting out work, with construction workers often in and out of work on a frequent basis, Midas pride ourselves in offering careers to our staff, in which they can develop their talents as far as they’d like to go.
"We have made the ethos of caring for and developing our staff a unique selling point that has ensured high staff retention levels, giving customers consistency and high standards on a long-term basis.
"At Midas, we consistently strive to have not only the best people but the happiest people too. We truly are all in this together – an ethos that shines through in everything that we do.
"I firmly believe the Gold Award will help us win business as look to an exciting future, working alongside many more blue chips clients."
