Our cup is running over this week, after receiving the news that our application for renewal of our Investors In People accreditation was successful.
Independent auditors on behalf of Investors In People were busy checking our business out last week. They looked into every aspect of our people management. This ranges from personal development, training, reward and recognition, as well as leadership and communication.
The Investors In People standard is the benchmark organisations aspire to, if they want to make the most of their people; attracting and retaining the best employees. IIP holders are re-assessed every three years. Since 2007, when we first met the IIP standard, we’ve been successfully audited a further three times. Why do we ask for these audits? Well, constant improvement is our goal, so we value these visits as a way to refine our management and strive for even better standards.
Our Investors In people journey has taken ten years and we are not finished improving. The assessors were able to provide us with lots of ideas for refining our employee management and communication skills still further. Over the coming year we’ll be consulting with all of our staff, key stakeholders and valued customers, in an endeavour to become the best we can be.
Here’s to another ten years Investors In people accreditation and, another 30 years in business
