St Annes retain Gold investors in People status

St Anne’s successfully retained its Gold Investors in People (IiP) status following a glowing assessment report from our assessor, John Taylor. IiP is recognised as a national standard which measures how well organisations manage, develop and motivate their workforce.

John spent 10 days with St Anne’s between August and September and met staff and clients from Bradford, Sheffield, Ripon, York, Doncaster, North Tyneside, Gateshead, Leeds and Huddersfield. These represented a real cross section of new and established services and gave John a real flavour of what St Anne’s does and how staff were feeling.

We received our report in October 2013.

In terms of strengths, John felt that the following areas were very positive:

  • Maintaining our values driven person centred culture despite the economic challenge
  • Improving our reputation as an employer of choice
  • Supportive, responsive management (ie flexible working, staff development opportunities)
  • Flexible approaches to learning and a well regarded L&D team
  • More structured approaches to Management Development and Succession Planning
  • Successful TUPE transfers and integrations from both public and independent sectors
