United Welsh gets GOLD!
In Olympic year United Welsh has been awarded The Investors in People (IiP) GOLD award.
United Welsh considers its staff as its most important asset. This is clear through its investment in training, learning, development and creating a culture of bravery and creativity empowering staff to unlock their potential.
The achievement of the Investors in People GOLD award reinforces this commitment to people, training, and development. United Welsh were required to undertake an audit for the IiP Award which they have held for over 15 years; the recent audit showed that the organisation marked ‘beyond the standard’ which resulted in the recognition of the GOLD standard.
Members of United Welsh staff and board members were invited to meet with the auditor and speak openly and honestly about their role, future goals and ambitions and feelings towards the company. The thorough process taking over two weeks led to the eventual recognition that the organisation was at the GOLD standard – a corporate objective for 2015! Only organisations that achieve The Standard plus 126 additional evidence requirements or more will be recognised as Investors in People GOLD.
Donna Howells, Head of Human Resources at United Welsh said; “This is the ultimate accolade and we are thrilled that all members of the United Welsh team feel this way about our business. We do not wish to rest on our laurels and intend to continuously improve and deliver this level of satisfaction amongst staff, customers and stakeholders. This accreditation is key to our business objectives and ethos, and we will work hard to maintain this high standard.”
