The Kings Ferry has become one of a select number of organisations across 75 countries in the World, to achieve the prestigious Silver status in the ‘Investors in People’ accreditation.
Investors in People recognises outstanding management, communication and training within businesses and organisations. From the thousands that seek Investors in People accreditation, only 6% gain the coveted Silver status.
“This is a testament to everyone’s hard work. Our ‘People’ value is incredibly important - without our staff we simply couldn’t deliver the service we do, day-in, day-out. We hope this award shows just how dedicated we are to supporting our staff and their development and how much we value their contribution to our ongoing success.”
Jenifer Richmond HR Director
Ian Fraser, Managing Director of The Kings Ferry, said: “Achieving the Investors in People Silver standard is something our organisation should be truly proud of. It is the sign of a company which is very committed to good people management practice and I’d like to congratulate each and every member of staff on their achievement.”
To achieve the initial Investors in People status a company or organisation has to meet 39 tough standards over the way they train and develop their people. To achieve silver status a further 76 evidence requirements must also be met. The Kings Ferry are now working towards the IIP Gold Standard.
