Weber Shandwick in Scotland has been awarded the prestigious Investors in People Gold Accreditation, the most successful framework for business improvement through people in the UK.
The award is a recognition for companies and institutions which strive for the best possible standards in people and management, and which support and nurture talent, and encourage personal development.
“This recognition reflects the strength of our highly collaborative culture, which fuels creativity and innovation,” said Moray Macdonald, Managing Director of Weber Shandwick Scotland.
“As a leading creative agency based in Scotland it is crucial that we are able to attract and retain the best talent.
“Our IIP Gold Accreditation helps to demonstrate that we go further than most employers to ensure our staff are engaged in developing our business and that we provide excellent development opportunities while recognising and rewarding performance.
Investors in People praised elements of the employee experience including flexible benefits, a comprehensive approach to continuous professional development, a global office exchange, a new trainee scheme, and a volunteering programme.
Achieving the Gold level of Accreditation puts Weber Shandwick in the top 7% of all IIP Accredited clients.
Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People Scotland, said “This is a fantastic achievement for Weber Shandwick. I would like to congratulate the organisation and its people on their commitment to continuous improvement.
“Investors in People offers a flexible, practical and easy to use business improvement tool designed to help organisations and their people achieve their objectives. I hope that more organisations in the area will be encouraged to sharpen their competitive edge by choosing to work with us.”
