Quality marksInvestors in People (IiP)
Why the Hesley Group links to IiP
IiP is designed to help employers
improve performance by linking people development and skills acquisition
to the specific aims and objectives of their business and needs of
their customers. The assessment process gives another opportunity for
quality assurance feedback against national standards from an
independent viewpoint. In this case the focus is on our key resource -
IiP is central to helping employees become and maintain customer
focused, enabling Hesley Group to more effectively meet customer needs.
IiP status brings public recognition for real achievements measured
against a rigorous national standard, which helps to attract the
best-quality job applicants.
Benefits for our organisation and staff and therefore those who live in our services
Skilled motivated people work harder and better, improving
productivity. Motivation is improved through employees' greater
involvement, personal and professional development and recognition of
their achievements. This leads to higher morale and improved retention
rates, which increases consistency for those receiving services, and
helps staff identify with the organisation's goals and each person's
