Go-Ahead achieves IiP first time
Go-Ahead has achieved the Investor in People (IiP) standard at its first attempt. IiP is the UK’s leading people management standard, which specialises in improving business performance through an organisation’s people. The standard was awarded following an independent review involving the operator’s staff based at the company’s London and Newcastle offices. The feedback from the IiP independent assessor said the Group had a strong team spirit, with individuals trusted and empowered to take responsibility. Communication within the organisation was open and honest and the workforce engaged.
Go-Ahead’s Group Chief Executive, David Brown, said, ‘I am really pleased with this accreditation. Achieving the standard demonstrates that the initiatives we have introduced to improve workplace culture, communications and people development are all making a difference.’
