AP Group has recently had its Investors in People accreditation renewed. Investors in People (IIP) is an award that companies measures its success not just in terms of sales and profits, but in a happy and motivated workforce.
Investors in People stated aim ’to provide straightforward, proven frameworks for delivering business improvement through people’. AP Group first gained the accreditation in 2004 and it was successfully renewed in August 2008.
HR director for AP Group, Gillian Gorvel, points out, it is a very worthwhile step to take. ’As much as any manager or director would like to think they know the prevailing mood within the company, our view of things is inevitably incomplete without input from our people,’ she said. ’The Investors in People assessment helps gather important data to show that, as an employer and as a business, we continue to move in the right direction.’
