Gleeds commended for retaining its IIP Gold Standard Status

Gleeds has been awarded Gold Standard by Investors in People (IIP) for the third time in a row.

IIP is the standard for people management and defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people for sustained success. The award acknowledges Gleeds’ commitment to excellence and continuous development of its internal stakeholders at every level, its systems, and ultimately its relationships and focus on its clients.

IIP assessor, Glenn Duggleby, said: “I’d like to commend Gleeds on its continued strong commitment to the development of people at all levels in the business. An aspect of special note is the company’s approach to ensuring it has strong leaders with a shared vision, who focus upon the aims and ambitions for the future of the business. There is also consideration of the impact that these goals will have, not only on its people, but on its clients in both the internal and external environment.”

Gleeds met 193 of the 196 areas of assessment and are one of the few companies in the industry to be recognised as a Gold Standard Investors in People business.

Commenting on the accolade, Main Board Director Stuart Senior, said: “We’re delighted to have once again been recognised as a Gold Standard Investors in People business. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and, as one of the few remaining independent consultancies in the UK, we are committed to achieving sustainable growth and have made significant steps in investing in our internal infrastructure.”
