ISD Solutions wins coveted Investors in People Bronze award
Published on 15th Aug, 2013
Putting its people first has enabled Gloucester based organisation to gain a prestigious national award.
ISD Solutions, the UK’s leading contractor specialising in the development, construction and maintenance of cold stores, firewalls, data centres, clean rooms, single-envelope, external industrial cladding was awarded the Investors in People Bronze award for going above and beyond in the way they develop, support and motivate their staff.
The Bronze award is achieved by just over 5% of Investors in People recognised organisations in the UK, all of which have demonstrated an additional 26 or more pieces of evidence above the Investors in People core Standard.
The Investors in People framework, which is suitable for organisations of any size and in any sector, transforms business performance through people, helping companies to achieve their objectives by targeting specific priorities within the organisation.
Andy Moon, CEO of ISD Solutions, employing just under 100 staff in their Gloucester base, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive the Investors in People accreditation. At ISD Solutions we have long recognised that our people are the backbone of the organisation and are proud of our track record in the development and training of skilled and motivated staff. Achieving Investors in People is not only recognition for the effective work that we already have in place but is also an important focus for our continuous learning and improvement programme.”
Organisations that have achieved the Investors in People Standard generally have lower staff turnover and sickness rates, lower recruitment costs and a reduced likelihood of litigation. In addition, they tend to have increased levels of profitability, employee engagement and productivity.
John Telfer, Managing Director of Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP), the organisation that delivers Investors in People for London and the South, said: “ISD Solutions should be very proud of their achievement, particularly as they have gone beyond the core requirements of the Standard. I hope other organisations will look to them as an example of what can be done when staff and managers work together.”
