IIP is a world-recognised standard that reflects the best in people management excellence and is underpinned by assessment around 3 key indicators – Leading (clarity of vision, purpose and inspiring employees to perform), Supporting (how jobs are designed, reward and recognition and performance management) and Improving (how capabilities are developed, and resources, plans and innovation to achieve the company’s objectives)
This achievement follows many hours of preparation by staff and managers across all teams and departments in the business, an in-depth assessment from an independent reviewing body including confidential interviews with a large number of staff from all departments, an online survey which was open to all staff to complete and other observations by the independent assessor.
The IIP assessor noted “everyone interviewed agrees their roles are designed to encourage and enable them to collaborate and work as a team. Formal and informal networks are in place including the Colleague Circle health and safety and CSR working groups.”
“Virtually everyone surveyed (98%) agreed the company has a plan for the future, the same proportion (98%) agrees the company is a great place to work. Everyone interviewed enjoys working at Arrow, many feeling it’s the best place they’ve ever worked.”
Only 17% of organisations currently hold the Gold standard so this is a fantastic accolade for Arrow County Supplies. This shows just how motivated and committed our team are, and how dedicated we are as an organisation to making the Arrow team the A-Team!
