The Corporate Chartered toolkit includes documents explaining what consumers can expect from a business that has achieved Chartered status whilst firms will be supplied with a Chartered wall plaque and window stickers to increase visibility and promote their status.
The toolkit also offers access to the digital Chartered logo, which can be used by firms on everything from email signatures to corporate web pages, social media, printed brochures or letterheads.
Steve Jenkins, development director of the CII, said: “Every firm that holds Chartered status adheres to an ethical code that underpins broader commitments to professional values.
“These include putting clients’ interests first, investing in ongoing development of their people’s technical skills and knowledge, and supporting wider initiatives that benefit society as well as the growth of the profession.
“Chartered firms are proud of achieving that status.
“The toolkit we have produced includes materials and ideas for how Chartered businesses can communicate more widely their commitment to professional standards.”
The CII updated Corporate Chartered status for the insurance and Financial Planning profession in May and, at the start of this month, the CII produced a new application form for applying for and renewing corporate Chartered status.
