Investors in People 2019

26/07/19

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the Gold Investors in People Standard.

One of our aims when we set up AWP in 2012 was to be an excellent employer, and we think we do a pretty good job in most respects. In 2016 we were awarded a certificate of accreditation from Investors in People which lasted 3 years. Through that process, our assessor gave us some recommendations on how to better embed some of the things we were doing as well as offering some new ideas to implement.

Over the last three years, we have put many of these initiatives in place and are pleased to report that we have not only been accredited once again but, skipped the Silver level and gone straight to Gold.  This will stay in place until 2022.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. 

Our examiner Jo described AWP as 'one of the strongest organisations [she's] worked with' and said ‘the only advice I can offer is to keep doing what you’re doing’. 

We look forward to working with our IiP accreditors to continue to improve as a business.
