Working together wins award!

Putting its people first has enabled a London based
organisation to gain a nationally accredited award.

Southbank IT Group, 1-2 Hatfields, was awarded the
Investors in People Standard for the way they develop support and motivate their team.

The Investors in People framework, which is suitable for organisations of any size and in any sector, transforms business performance through people, helping companies to achieve their objectives by targeting specific priorities within the organisation.

Francis Toye, Managing Director at Southbank IT, which has some 35 employees, said “we are delighted to retain this award which we have held now for over 10 years. This recognition of the good work we do to run Southbank IT well and involve everyone is very welcome.”

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 “Southbank IT Group 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.”
