INVESTORS IN PEOPLE – Bronze win for Barfoots of Botley Ltd


In March 2014 we booked for our first ever assessment against the Investors in People standards. Barfoots decided to follow the IIP standards in order to benchmark current practice against a nationally recognised framework and to further identify how we can drive investment in our people. The award recognised our achievements through a ten stage process. Highlights were;

Our Management Development Programme in association with the Institute of Leadership and Management
Effective communication from the Managing Director allowing all employees the opportunity to understand how the company is doing and see how their contributions are having an effect on the bottom line
Clear opportunity for individual career progression through learning and development in line with company objectives
Accredited in house trainers providing flexible delivery of training with a blend of classroom and work based learning

It was also noted during the assessment that there is a clear ethos across the company of continuous improvement, where all people are actively engaged and feedback is consistently used to inform further developments. Barfoots are extremely proud to have achieved Bronze accreditation on our first attempt at recognition, it proves to highlight how ‘Our People’ are committed to their own development and to the development and success of Barfoots of Botley.
