Powering On To Investors In People Accreditation
Riello UPS achieves the Investors in People ‘We invest in people’ standard accreditation after successfully passing a rigorous assessment covering topics such as leadership, trust and company values.
Investors in People (IIP) was introduced back in 1991 as a government-backed scheme aimed at making work better. It focuses on helping businesses ensure their staff are firmly at the centre of their growth and development. Over the past three decades, the programme has supported 11 million workers in organisations across 75 countries.
To earn the prestigious accreditation, we took part in a lengthy assessment process that saw several members of the Riello UPS team meet with IIP representatives to discuss job satisfaction, work-life balance and the opportunity to develop new skills.
Investors in People praised Riello UPS for its strong commitment to developing high-performing teams and providing opportunities for learning and training. Its feedback report also congratulated us on the way we structure staff roles and aim to deliver continuous improvement.
Leo Craig, Managing Director of Riello UPS, commented: “We’re extremely proud to earn Investors in People status. It’s a fantastic achievement for our staff and demonstrates the importance of teamwork and supporting each other.
“Now we’re all looking forward to working with Investors in People in the months and years to come to build on this success, identifying the areas where we can improve and empowering our staff to do even more.”
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, added: “We’d like to congratulate Riello UPS. Being accredited with ‘We invest in people’ is a remarkable effort for any organisation and places Riello UPS in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”
Riello UPS will now work with Investors in People over a three-year programme to build on the standard accreditation and ensure a culture of continuous improvement and putting people first is embedded across the entire business.
We will aim to work towards achieving further IIP accreditations such as Silver, Gold and Platinum in the years to come.
