Adestra announces that it has been awarded the Investors in People Silver status, an internationally recognized accreditation acknowledging an outperforming place to work, a great employer and commitment to sustainability. The Silver status is given to fewer than 600 companies in the UK, or 2.82% of those who apply.
Henry Hyder-Smith, Adestra’s CEO said:
“At Adestra, we know it takes more than just technology to make our business successful. A big part of our offering is our customer service and that would not be possible without our dedicated, enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable employees. Every success is a result of having great people we can depend on, nurturing that relationship and growing together. We’re delighted to have that relationship recognised in this way. ”
The assessment process for this accreditation starts by staff completing a questionnaire in which they assess their company’s performance in a variety of areas. This is followed by an assessor interviewing, observing and questioning staff across a variety of roles to judge performance against the Investors in People standard.
In order to achieve the Silver status Adestra had to meet the core standard requirements plus be competent in a further 78 requirements in the following three years from achieving the initial basic accreditation.
