At Beanstalk, we know that good people make a great business, which is why we’re now re-accredited with Investors in People (IIP). In fact, this is our 4th year of accreditation with IIP!
We were eager to gain the Investors in People re-accreditation for another year, as we understand how important it is to acknowledge our company performance, not to mention gain new and better insight, as well to set new challenges.
What is Investors in People?
Since 1991 (that’s a whopping 27 years), Investors in People has set the standard for better people management. The accreditation is one that’s recognised across the world and held by over 10,000 organisations (including Beanstalk) in 78 countries!
The Sign of Successful Accreditation Against the Investors in People Standard is:
- A great employer
- An outperforming place to work
- A clear commitment to sustainability
And at Beanstalk, we aim to be, and to sustain all three of these signs!
The IIP Standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results. For those looking to meet such a standard (i.e. us), a rigorous assessment, methodology, and framework reflecting the latest in workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures is required.
Setting the Standard…
“The IIP Standard has allowed us to look at our practises and outcomes more closely and consider our levels of performance. We’re always looking for ways to outperform, inspire people, provide a better service for our customers and deliver outstanding results, and IIP helps us to meet those objectives” – Phil Swanson, Beanstalk Director
The bar has never been higher but we’re proud to wear the mark of excellence, and to acknowledge our high performance in business and people management.
It doesn’t stop there however, for Beanstalk, constant change is normal, so continuing to set new goalposts and demonstrate a clear commitment to sustainable growth is essential in everything that we do.
