Following the Raymond Brown Group’s Investors In People (IIP) Accreditation in February last year, we have successfully passed an interim review with IIP Practitioner, Dorothy Shrivell.
Dorothy visited the Raymond Brown head office to meet with Steve Clasby, Chief Operating Officer, and Gemma Taylorson, HR Manager, to see how the group businesses are progressing with their targets for improvement set with the initial accreditation last year, discuss key areas the businesses are focusing on and to look at developing an action plan for the next 12 months.
IIP is the mark of high performance in business and people management and, as a result, the business has regular briefings, frequent feedback and review meetings about its performance.
Dorothy commented: “The team were able to confirm that a number of the recommendations highlighted within the IIP report had been implemented and it was helpful to remind themselves of these. In particular, senior leaders have worked hard to improve communication across the whole business, created more team building opportunities to strengthen inter and intra team relationships and created better awareness of the new values.”
Gemma said: “The recognition from IIP is very positive for us as an organisation, we have also found it invaluable working with them to ensure we are continually improving as an employer.”
