We are pleased to share that METCLOUD has joined the 17% of businesses across the world to be awarded a ‘GOLD’ status by accreditation body ‘Investors in People’ (IIP). McDonalds, Sainsbury’s, and Age UK are just a few examples of companies that have also been awarded the ‘We Invest in People – Gold’ accreditation.

METCLOUD has used the Investors in People standard for many years. This helps us pro-actively improve employee satisfaction and support our ambitious growth plans. With the current business climate, we thought there was no better time than now to GO FOR GOLD!

Developed and refined over 29 years, the ‘We Invest in People’ accreditation and framework “helps companies, leaders and employees work together to create better, more productive workplaces.” Investors in People has helped #MakeWorkBetter for over 11 Million people and is recognised in 66 countries, making it the global benchmark when it comes to people management.

The Investors in People Association helped METCLOUD gain world-class insight into our performance in three key areas. These include team leadership, improvement, and support. They were extremely helpful throughout the process and prescribed an action plan to boost these areas within the company. They also focused on things such as recognition & reward, company values and inspiring leadership.
