Construction and regeneration company Emanuel Whittaker has recently achieved the Silver award in the Investors in People business standard. It is one of only a handful of construction companies in the UK to reach the Silver standard.
Clive Newton, Managing Director said: “We are delighted to have met such a significant milestone in this well respected quality standard.
“This business benchmark not only looks at our systems and best practice but also takes into account how our people operate - focusing on areas such as development and training which in turn allows staff to enhance the services provided to our customers across the North West.”
Working with Investors in People is proven to improve financial performance, productivity and profitability and around 26% of the UK workforce is employed by organisations that are Investors in People or working towards it. Will Kilby from Case Business Solutions was the auditor for Emanuel Whittaker. He said:
“Achieving Investors in People Silver shows a forward thinking and expansive approach to cascading best practice through every level of the organisation. It demonstrates a progressive approach to business improvement through people.”
HR Manager Anna Whittaker has been responsible for leading the Investors in People process. “We are absolutely delighted with the Silver recognition status and our thanks go to all the Emanuel Whittaker staff that have made this award achievable. I would like to thank everyone for their professionalism and dedication.”
