The UK’s leading people management standard, Investors in People specialises in transforming business performance through people. The Gold standard is awarded to truly cutting-edge organisations, operating at the highest level of people management practice.

A rigorous four day assessment was undertaken which included interviews with many of SolutionsPT’s employees. Performance was reviewed against 196 evidence requirements and SolutionsPT met all of them, achieving, the best possible outcome.

SolutionsPT joins an elite group of 156 organisations who have been awarded the Gold standard in the North West of England and less than 600 nationally. Within the report, Joanne Hamilton, Investor in People Assessor noted, “People at all levels are effectively engaged in decision making and identifying ways in which the organisation can continuously improve what it does in order to meet customer needs, deliver excellent levels of customer service and therefore continue to grow the business”.

“We are absolutely delighted to have achieved this,” said Louise Potts, People and Culture Manager at SolutionsPT “Our people are at the heart of our business and we strive to create an environment where everyone feels integral to the success of the organisation and encouraged to reach their full potential.  This acknowledgement of our hard work is a real achievement and one we will endeavour to maintain.”

“The fact that the Gold standard is awarded to less than three per cent of Investors in People’s member organisations nationally shows it isn’t given out lightly,” explained Phil Gillard, SolutionsPT’s General Manager. “We will continue to uphold and improve our standards and our commitment to our 70 staff,” he noted.

The report also noted that, “The senior team as well as a number of other managers are considered by other employees to be inspiring in terms of their approach to leading, managing and developing the workforce. High levels of respect and trust are in place”. The Investor in People accolade adds to the company’s other prestigious award received this year; a listing in the Sunday Times “Best 100 Small Companies to Work”.

SolutionsPT has over 27 years’ experience in providing the UK and Irish manufacturing and industrial sectors with software, hardware and project delivery services working with customers including PepsiCo, BP and Thames Water.
