The Keil Centre is proud to announce its recent Investors In People (IIP) accreditation at Platinum level, the first company in Scotland to achieve the highest level of IIP accreditation.
The Keil Centre was assessed as being a “high-performing” across seven of the nine IIP framework indicators. The report highlighted that staff at all levels of the organisation feel motivated to achieve and continually improve, knowing that each individual plays a key role in contributing to the success of the business. This motivation was enhanced by evidence of strong leadership and high levels of autonomy among staff, who feel they are working in a supportive environment with an open and transparent culture. Collaborative working at all levels of the organisation was observed and a true sense of pride in delivering to a high standard, demonstrating that core company values of collaboration, people-focus and professional integrity were deeply embedded across company practices and staff behaviours.
Keil Centre Director, Ken Gray, said, “We are delighted to receive this top level accreditation from IIP. As a company who works with other organisations to support development of strong leaders, cultivate capability and sustain strong teams, the recognition from IIP that these characteristics are deeply engrained within our own company culture is extremely satisfying.”
Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People Scotland, said, “This an outstanding achievement for The Keil Centre. The new Platinum award recognises organisations who have some of the best people practices in Scotland in place. If all organisations were adopting the same practices we could transform the Scottish economy and that’s a goal worth aiming for”.
