The award, part of the ‘We Invest in People’ accreditation, is only achieved by 2% of organisations who apply. Investors in People is a standard for people management and offers accreditation to organisations that adhere to its ethics.
There are four levels of the award, standard, silver, gold and platinum. Within each of those there are four levels of ‘maturity’, which include developed, established, advanced and high performing. Each level is more progressive and challenging than the next and each award is a fantastic recognition in its own right.
Wingate managing director Ben Clarke said:
Achieving the platinum accreditation for ‘We Invest in People’ is a fantastic accolade and endorses our view that if you create a culture where everyone supports each other and knows their role in delivering exceptional service, special things can happen.
This is never more relevant than in the current challenging times.
Investors in People head Paul Devoy, in awarding the accreditation said:
Platinum accreditation on ‘We Invest in People’ is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places Wingate in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.
