OPP gains repeated recognition for putting its people first
30 Jul 2013
OPP has once again received the Investors In People Standard for the way it develops, supports and motivates its team.
The Investors in People framework is designed to help organisations of any size and in any sector transform their business performance through people. It helps companies achieve their objectives by targeting specific priorities within the organisation.
Tracey Reid, Head of Group HR at OPP, comments, "We're delighted to have received this award for the third time. The accreditation demonstrates that our core values are embedded in every aspect of the business and that employees are continually inspired and motivated to improve their own performance. It’s a testament to the processes that we have in place to ensure that every member of our team receives the right level of training and support to enable them to perform to the best of their abilities."
Organisations that have achieved the Investors In People Standard generally have lower staff turnover and sickness rates, lower recruitment costs and a reduced likelihood of litigation. In addition, they tend to have increased levels of profitability, employee engagement and productivity.
John Telfer, Managing Director of Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP), the organisation that delivers Investors In People for London and the South, said, "OPP should be congratulated for the way in which management and staff have come together to produce real results. I hope other organisations in the industry will look to them as a great example of what can be achieved."
