Westfield Health Achieves Silver with Latest Version of Investors in People
Sheffield-based Westfield Health has been awarded Silver accreditation against the Investors in People Standard during a recent review, demonstrating their commitment to high performance through good people management.
Westfield Health has held the Investors in People accreditation since 1997, and is one of the first to be accredited with the newly released and more stretching sixth generation Investors in People Standard in South Yorkshire. It is an acknowledgement of the organisation’s commitment to engaging the workforce in continuous improvement and performance management – key strengths identified during the assessment.
Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Based on the practices of leading organisations from across the world, the newly released sixth generation has evolved to reflect leading people management practice, the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.
Investors in People enables organisations to benchmark against the best on an international scale. Only the top 5% of accredited businesses across all sectors are expected to be awarded Silver with the sixth generation Standard and this is therefore recognition of Westfield Health’s high performance in people management.
Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said:
“We’d like to congratulate Westfield Health. Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. Westfield Health should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
Steve Burrows, Managing Director of Investors in People North of England said:
“This is a fantastic achievement for Westfield Health and I would like to congratulate all of the team. We believe that your people make the difference and by investing in them you are looking to create sustainable success. IIP is designed to help organisations and their people to realise potential, providing a simple road map for excellence. With their Silver accreditation success, Westfield Health is certainly working to realise their people potential.”
Commenting on the award, Jill Davies, Westfield Health’s Chief Executive, said:
“This achievement is a real testament to the outstanding team of people we have here at Westfield Health. The Investors in People framework and rigorous Standard enable organisations to benchmark against the very best in the business on an international scale, and attaining Silver is a great accolade.”
Congratulations to all the team!
