Investors In People Accreditation

Posted by: sara-jane

We are pleased to announce that NYBCP has once again secured the Investors In People accreditation demonstrating our commitment to best practices in people management and development. 

NYBCP has long recognised it is the people behind our partnership which has brought the success we have today. From the front line surveyors covering developments in the vast, beautiful areas of North Yorkshire to the office based members making sure the systems continue to work efficiently, the partnership would not be where we are today without the commitment and drive of every member of our team. It is for this reason, it is so important for us to make sure the people practices we incorporate as an organisation are proactive and successful. 

To achieve accreditation, we were assessed against indicators of high performance using desk top reviews, interviews, meetings and observations. The assessment included an online survey- of which many outcomes were above the benchmarking average for our business sector. Once the assessment day had been conducted and the accreditor confirmed our successful assessment, a full report was issued which along with the findings of the assessment criteria, included some wonderful feedback from the assessor following her experience of the day:

“I was made to feel very welcome at all times during the context meeting and on the onsite day.  It was great to see the working environment and get a sense of the organisation’s culture.  Staff represented the organisation well at all times and deserve recognition for this.  The hospitality was very much appreciated. I have very much enjoyed working with North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership and look forward to an ongoing and supportive relationship as your IIP Practitioner”

Our IIP assessment also provides suggestions of where and how we can continue to improve, which will feed into our business plans for 2019 and beyond.

Robert Harper, Head of Building Control, added “This is a wonderful achievement for the partnership and in particular the staff who work here. This accolade is due to the hard work of all the staff at NYBCP and I would like to pass on a special thank you to everyone and to let them know how proud I am of this success. It’s important to me that everyone who works at the partnership is given the support and training that they need to ensure that a high quality service is provided to all our customers and clients. This award demonstrates our continual commitment to providing a first class service by first class people, well done everyone! ”
