More Platinum Success for Thenue!

We have scored another success after being shortlisted for a top UK award. Just four months after capturing the rarely-awarded Platinum Investors in People status, the Association has been shortlisted for Employer of the Year.

The news came as a welcome surprise and we will face eight other Platinum-awarded challengers for the title. We were previously awarded Gold status but made the leap to Platinum in the summer – an accreditation held by just three percent of IIP-accredited organisations.

Three Employers of the Year will be awarded – depending on the size of the workforce, we are competing in the category for 50 to 249 employees. Our Chief Executive, Charles Turner said: “This is brilliant news - coming so soon after the Association was awarded Platinum Status in May.

“To make the shortlist for the Investors in People Awards 2021 is the icing on the cake and demonstrates recognition for the incredible job our staff and board of management have done over the many difficult months of the pandemic.”

Many housing associations have embraced the concept of Investors In People in keeping with the continuous improvement of staff so evident within the housing association movement.

There are four levels to Investors in People status – Standard, Silver, Gold and Platinum. But to achieve the Platinum standard, organisations must demonstrate ‘high performance’ in virtually all of the assessment indicators.

Our Investors in People journey began when we were first accredited in 2006.

The Investors in People Awards 2021 will be held digitally on 23rd November.
