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.

The Silver accreditation, which is valid for three years, improves upon the previous Bronze level award achieved by UKAD in both 2012 and 2015.

UKAD Chief Executive, Nicole Sapstead, said: “We are delighted to have received the Silver Investors in People accreditation.

“As an employer, we understand the importance of a happy, healthy, motivated and knowledgeable workforce, and are pleased our commitment to developing our staff, both professionally and personally, has been recognised in this way.

“Over the past year, our workforce has grown by around 25%, so it has been imperative for us to manage this effectively, providing opportunities for internal progression, as well as hiring outstanding external candidates.”

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We would like to congratulate UKAD. Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, and an organisation committed to achieving success by realising the potential of its people. UKAD should be extremely proud of its achievement.”

Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.
