A training company with offices in Huddersfield has made the shortlist for this year’s International Investors in People Award.
ITS Group, with offices at Lockwood and in Barnsley and Doncaster, will face tough competition from firms across the globe at a spectacular ceremony on June 29 in London.
The group is competing in the category for Excellence in Leadership and Management for firms with up to 249 employees. The awards receive more than 300 entries from organisations of all sizes worldwide and celebrate the best people management practices among Investors in People accredited businesses.
ITS was shortlisted for the achievements of its leadership team under chief executive Dr Chris Payne which has fostered a culture of trust and transparency and encouraged employees to share best practice.
Its a far cry from the position the business found itself in just four years ago when Ofsted identified a number of areas which required improvement after the training provider was given a “satisfactory” grade. It has now been judged as “good” by Ofsted, with elements of “outstanding” provision – all thanks to the investment it has made in its people.
In 2016 ITS will celebrate its 20th year as an IIP member. The organisation currently holds Gold IIP status.
