In achieving the award, we are proud to say we have demonstrated our continued commitment to empowering and engaging employees, supporting a company-wide culture of learning and creating a high-performance environment that delivers the ultimate value to all our customers.
IPS achieved the Investors in People regular standard in March of 2015 . Independent interviews were carried with staff chosen randomly by an external assessor who judged the business against 196 evidence requirements and judged the business to have achieve the standard.
Commenting on the award, Patrick York, Operations Director said: “It demonstrates our ambition to invest in employees to achieve set goals, create a culture of empowerment, recognition and reward and invest time in learning and development. I believe that it is essential for the development of a business to truly engage team members at all levels. My vision for IPS has always been to become an employer of choice where everyone feels valued and can make a real difference to the business. We have developed a culture where everyone is free to grow as a person, a team member, or manager, where we all feel trusted, that our contribution is valued and belong to something special.”
