Blue Pelican awarded Investors in People silver accreditation
The company first achieved IIP accreditation in 2010, and has used what it learned from that process every day since when considering how to offer the best possible training and career development opportunities to our staff.
The business has continued to grow in that time offering new opportunities to existing and joining staff. Managers within the business have regular input to the strategy and all staff are encouraged to feedback to us via an online questionnaire.
When renewal time came around the company wanted to push themselves to achieve even more and are delighted to have been awarded the Silver accreditation. We needed to evidence at least 76 additional criteria over and above the core IIP Standard, which was done mostly through interviews with staff at all levels.
The company stated, "Investors in People accreditation underlines our commitment to providing the best agency environment in the area. We benchmark ourselves against the Best Companies to Work For criteria and have always had a view that developing talent from within would allow us to continue providing the enhanced recruitment service our clients have come to expect. The framework provided by IIP has allowed us to maintain our ethos as we grew, and to incorporate the staff’s feedback into our growth plans."
