For the past 3 years, Extract Technology have held the Investors In People Silver standard award, and are extremely excited to announce we have been reaccredited once again with the Silver Standard!
We are pleased that we have continued to maintain a high standard of work, commitment and teamwork in order to be reaccredited under the Silver Award, and thank everyone for their efforts throughout.
Ahead of the 2-day assessment, a number of meetings and document reviews took place with Investors In People to understand the goals and aspirations of the business and how this aligned to the Investors In People standard. In addition, everyone within the business was invited to share their thoughts on ETL through an online questionnaire, which was used as part of the overall assessment.
The reaccreditation took place over 2 days in October where Roger Bradshaw, Investors In People Assessor, held a number of virtual interviews with independently selected Extract employees.
Silver is a fantastic achievement and something only 20% of organisations assessed achieve! It means that the right principles are in place but more than that, it means people and leaders are making active efforts to make sure that there’s real consistency and everyone in the organisation are feeling the effects!
Alan Wainwright, Managing Director, commented “Extract Technology has always recognised the strength of our business is our people and we are absolutely delighted to achieve the silver level of the Investors in people (IIP) standard
Since our last accreditation the team throughout has worked extremely hard in establishing and progressing against the nine investors in people criteria set out in the standard.
Particularly pleasing from the accreditation report and feedback was the clear commitment to people engagement and development and how this aligns to our vision of engagement, continual improvement and sustainable success. The IIP framework sits particularly well against our overall business strategy and our mission and core values all of which support the development and production of our world class products.
I would like to personally thank everyone in our business for the great work in achieving the IIP Silver standard.”
