Paul Devoy, said:
“Organisations succeed by realising the potential of their people. The organisations receiving Investors in People accreditation today are proof of that.
People’s strengths, ambitions and ideas are the engine of success. IIP accreditation signals to customers and employees your commitment to good business and people management excellence.
If you develop the skills of your employees and improve your employee engagement, success will ultimately follow. Through Investors in People, everything is informed by one principle: good people make a great business."
Organisations are judged to have achieved IIP standards based on a tried and tested methodology of leading practice and a rigorous process of assessment.
Since 1991, Investors in People has set the standard for better people management. The Standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well. Successful accreditation against the Investors in People Standard is the sign of a great employer who understands that it is people that make the difference.
