Wednesday 26th of July 2017

Avenues has been awarded a silver accreditation against the Investors in People Standard demonstrating our commitment to high performance through good people management.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate Avenues, Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. Avenues should be extremely proud of their achievement.”

The assessors interviewed 85 people from across the Group. Other methods were also used including surveys, meetings and reviews of staff publications. The IiP were particularly impressed with the way we work together with shared values and behaviours, how much staff enjoy working for Avenues and employees positive attitude towards change.

Jo Land, Group Deputy Chief Executive, explained: “We should all be proud of the Silver Award from IIP. The feedback from the inspectors paints a picture of real togetherness and shared values across the organisation, which is something we sense every day, but it was fantastic to have it highlighted by independent assessors.”IIP had no areas of concern, but they did note areas where they felt we could improve further. While we were already working on these, we value the extra insight and ideas from IIP which will help us develop our new strategy for 2018-21.”
