iForce awarded Investors in People Gold Standard

Supply chain business iForce has successfully secured the Investors in People’s (IiP) Gold Standard.

The company earned special praise for its commitment to its people, how the business encourages leadership, and the emphasis it places on training and coaching.

iForce was first awarded a silver accreditation in 2013 and again last year. The improved accreditation followed comprehensive assessments by IiP, which evaluated the organization’s values, effective business planning, leadership and management capability, and performance measurement.

Brian Gaunt, CEO of iForce, said, “An award of this nature can only be achieved through the combined efforts of all of the colleagues in our business and I would like to congratulate them for all of their hard work.

“This accreditation points to our continuing efforts to make iForce a great place to work, where colleagues are valued for the contribution that they make to the success of the business.”

Gold Standard status has been achieved by only 3% of the 15,000 organizations recognized as IiP organizations, located across 75 countries worldwide. The IiP Standard provides a practical framework for improving business performance and competitiveness through good practice in people management.

Mike Bramall, IiP auditor, added, “iForce‘s achievement in attaining the Gold Investors in People accreditation is testament to their focus on people, the quality of their people-management practices and their search for continuous improvement.”
