Investors in People offers a business improvement framework designed to help all kinds of organisations develop performance through its people. It provides tailored assessments designed to support organisations in planning, implementing and evaluating effective strategies for organisations of all sizes and sectors.
This announcement has recently been covered in The Milton Keynes Citizen - see the coverage here.
It concentrates on the planning, internal communication and development of the key areas within businesses and its people such as; Learning & Development Strategy, Management Effectiveness, and Recognition & Reward.
The decision to obtain the accreditation was to support Mirus’ continual improvement programme, which heavily champions people at the centre of everything that is achieved and delivered. The key changes the team at Mirus are seeing are:
- A more positive work environment
- Greater commitment to listening to ideas and plans
- An increased focus on training & development
- Improved communication across the organisation
- A greater understanding of an individual’s contribution to the business
Paul Tomlinson, MD of Mirus commented “The focus for us is not on achieving a standard or a badge on the wall to simply win new business but on how we as a business can perform more effectively internally. The company wants to support continuous development of its professional staff, offer progression and career opportunities for support and admin staff, and instil a culture of developing all people within the organisation at a time of rapid growth.”
John Telfer, Managing Director of Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP), the Investors in People Centre for London and the South of England, said: “This award is a celebration of the hard work and changes that have been made at Mirus. Everyone in the organisation should be very pleased with the outcomes of the assessment. There are exciting and challenging times ahead and it appears that the organisation is well equipped to take these on.
