InfoTech have just won the coveted "Gold Level" award for their commitment to Investors in people.
Infotech Solutions (UK) Ltd, based at Medway City Estate, which provides IT solutions, was presented with the Gold Investors in People (IiP) Award at a ceremony held at The Chesterfield Hotel, Mayfair, London.
Investors in People is a national quality Standard awarded to well-run organisations which demonstrate good management practice with a high emphasis on best practice people management and development.
Jason Foord, Managing Director at Infotech Solutions, said: “The first time we passed the accreditation it meant a lot to us as we had put significant time and resources into the procedures and were ensuring we were doing all we could to look after our staff". “This year we were very pleased to achieve Gold status and it is a testament to the staff that they saw fit to award us the highest level of accreditation. We have found that staff really buy into the philosophy behind the IiP standard and are happier at work knowing that we fulfil all the requirements at the highest level. Happy staff are productive staff, so there are benefits on all levels of the business.”
Recent research, conducted by the Centre for Business Performance at Cranfield School of Management, showed that working with Investors in People increases profitability by enhancing managerial skills and increasing the performance of managers. It also inspires a high-performance management culture and an effective learning environment, both of which help to improve business performance.
Infotech Solutions’s Investors in People assessor Karen Chantler commented: “The rapid pace of development in the company’s growth has been a testament and commitment to creating an empowered, involved team.”
