The Royal Mint amongst very first to be awarded gold investors in people
26 Nov 2015
The Royal Mint, based in Llantrisant South Wales, has been awarded a Gold accreditation against the new Investors in People standard, demonstrating their commitment to realising the potential of their people for high performance. The standard sets a new benchmark for excellence in people management and recognises those that are outperforming in their field.
Academics, business leaders, industry experts and over a thousand leading organisations were involved in the creation of the sixth generation Investors in People Standard. The Royal Mint was amongst fifty-two organisations across a range of sectors and countries to be assessed against the new standard.
The Standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework. The framework reflects the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. Revisions have also been made to the assessment process which now includes an online assessment increasing the sample of employees involved, as well as the chance to benchmark against thousands of organisations.
Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “Meeting the sixth generation Standard is something that The Royal Mint should be extremely proud of, it is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. I would like to thank every person at The Royal Mint for their involvement in the pilot and their collaboration with Investors in People at this important time. Most of all I would like to congratulate them on their fantastic achievement.”
Commenting on the award, Sarah Bradley HR Director said: “We are very proud to have been reassessed this year and to be accredited with Gold once again. It was great to receive feedback on the excellent improvements we have made since our last assessment as we continue to better acknowledge our staff, who are our greatest asset.”
