Investors in People (IIP) is the UK’s leading people management standard, helping companies to better support the continued development of their workforce.
Here at ecosurety, our staff mean a great deal to us. They are our greatest assets and we love to see them grow and develop to hit their career goals. To do this we invest heavily in training, just ask our recent graduates!
Investors in People (IIP) is the UK’s leading people management standard, helping companies to better support the continued development of their workforce; so we thought it was the ideal standard to measure ourselves against.
As it was our first attempt, we stopped short of going for the top level (Gold) and settled for Silver, up from the Bronze level and the Standard IIP Accreditation. Leaving Gold until next time means we have a target to aim for in the near future as well as room to continue to develop our processes.
When we received the formal assessment report back from IIP, our HR Manager, Jackie Smith, was delighted that we had achieved our Silver level target. She said “This is absolutely fantastic news. It shows everyone we care about our team and take employee development seriously, next stop Gold!”
2015 will see us receive another visit from the friendly people at IIP to be audited for the Gold level standard, so watch this space as ecosurety continue to expand our portfolio of awards and accreditations.
