What does the Investors in People standard mean?
The Investors in People GOLD provides a framework that helps organisations to improve performance and realise objectives through the effective management and development of their people. Meridian has been praised for:-
Open management style - the supportive approach enables people to give their best at every level within the company. Managers listen to staff views and are generally seen as sharing information widely, with a strong focus on the individual, one-to-one level.
Commitment to Learning and Development - continues to be at a high level and the company takes time and considerable effort to ensure that the best possible training is selected for staff.
We have been commended for the significant support provided for employees who wish to progress up the career ladder. We have designed and improved internal training programmes over the years and now have three distinct programmes: Senior in Training; Deputy in Training and Manager in Training. These enable staff to learn progressively and to take advantage of job opportunities as they arise. It has meant that many of our current deputies and managers have worked their way through the programme from being a carer or domestic.
