Birmingham based Trident, a social business providing 3000 homes for people in need, a 1000 of which are for people with special needs, has maintained the prestigious Investors in People standard.
IiP is the national award that sets a level of good practice for training and development of staff to achieve the goals of the organisation. Maintaining the Standard is one of the key objectives of Trident’s corporate strategy.
Testimony to Trident is their belief that Investors in People is a means by which employers can help ensure bottom-line business results.
It is only by equipping staff with the skills and flexibility they require to do their job those businesses can effectively maximise their output.
Ann Rivera, Trident’s Organisational Development Director says: “I am delighted that we have maintained the Investors in People standard across the whole organisation. This reflects the hard work our staff put in to ensure that our internal processes for the development and management of people meet the required IiP Standard.
“We’ve been through a thorough assessment process which has involved internal and external reviews of all our learning and development strategies to highlight good practice and identify and address any gaps where there is still room for improvement.
“I place great importance upon the IiP status because it sends an important message to each of our 450 staff, that their role is valued and that we are aspiring to continual improvement. This is something that does not go unnoticed by the outside world.”
