Investor in People Accreditation

Based on 25 years of leading practice, the Investors in People standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.

ROI first achieved the IiP status in 2009. We were successfully reassessed in 2012; evidence that focusing on people has resulted in 2014 in winning Cheshire Large Business of the Year, following the year before being a “One to Watch” company by the Times Newspaper.

Our second assessment will take place at the end of the month which will culminates in a company-wide report. The report will provide an insight to our strengths and opportunities as a people-focused company and provide an understanding of how our growth since the last assessment has impacted on our culture.


ROI – Investors in People Award

Investors in People Award

Many people pay lip-service to accreditations such as Investors in People (IIP) but ROI have been living the IIP philosophy since inception and in July 2006 were rewarded with formal accreditation.

Most people have heard of Investors In People (IIP) but the question is what does it mean? What is it all really about? Investing in people for Investors In People (IIP) purposes used to mean lots of form filling in and assessment, audits, training on how to fill the forms in, etc. It did not take into account the real culture of a company to look after and indeed invest in it’s staff.

However, Investors In People (IIP) has been drastically revised and now it is exactly that culture and built-in attitude from the top management down through the entire company that wins Investors In People (IIP) certification. This is exactly what ROI has done since it’s inception.

Having increased from four to 48 staff in a matter of twelve months the Management Team have ensured that the investment in people has remained a focal point of the business.

Every member of staff has a monthly Training Needs Analysis. The training tasks can then either be handled by the Line Manager or by the Training Manager who provides two hours of class-based training every week for each member of staff according to the needs identified. This allows ROI the flexibility to continually monitor training needs and provide timely training and development solutions. In addition, every member of staff also has a bi-annual career review with one of the directors where they receive counselling on how to meet their long-term career ambitions. The results and improvements from the training is monitored to ensure that the effects of the training can be measured and further training and assistance provided if necessary.

The Investors In People (IIP) assessor, Evelyn Davies, was most impressed with ROI saying, “The organisation is creating an environment where it is safe to learn and safe to make mistakes and is building a strong learning-organisation culture.”

So ROI really are investing in their people by committing to Investors In People (IIP). With zero attrition for the third year running, the employees, management and clients are clearly reaping the returns
