• Brother UK achieves Platinum status in people management

        • Brother UK has become the first large business in the UK to receive the Investors in People (IIP) Platinum status, an award in people management.

          The accreditation was achieved after receiving online feedback from the Brother’s 180 employees which was followed by interviews, measuring performance against the nine indicators of the Investors in People Standard. The company was seen to have made progress in leadership, supported employees and continual improvement, resulting in an average staff retention rate of over 13 years.

           Phil Jones, Managing Director of Brother UK said, “we see learning and development as a key driver of our long-term competitiveness, as well as collaboration and innovation, which keep us at the forefront of developments in the technology industry and also as an employer. Investors in People estimates that only 0.05 per cent of businesses could achieve platinum status, so we’re all incredibly proud of the award which represents a culmination of many years of hard work re-purposing our business.”

          IIP also highlighted Brother’s commitment to sustainable growth and planning for the future and following its recent success at the Northern Power Women Awards, the company were also commended for equality and diversity.

          Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People said, “we’d like to congratulate Brother UK on their achievement of Investors in People platinum accreditation. It is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success.”

          Moving forward with Investors in People, Brother UK will be working closely with other organisations to share experience and knowledge of its transformation journey and lessons learned.
