St Albans City and District Council has retained its highly-prized Gold Investors in People (IIP) award for the way it leads, supports and manages staff.

The IIP process assesses how organisations manage, develop and lead their people giving staff the opportunity to express their views and shape their workplace along the way.

Accreditation against the IIP Standard is intended to be “the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to sustained success”.

Investors in People is a Community Interest Company, its international Standard defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results. IIP works with thousands of businesses across the country. For more information see: www.investorsinpeople.com
