Towards the end of 2011 many of the staff at Starbank were interviewed as part of our Investors in People assessment that takes place every 3 years. At our last assessment in 2008 we were able to take our accreditation to Silver level which at that time for a manufacturing company like ours was excellent.
Whilst preparing for our 2011 assessment the aim was to maintain the silver award with the hope that in some areas of the criteria we might achieve gold. We are very proud to announce that following the assessment Starbank and it’s staff have been awarded Gold IIP status, a fantastic achievement for everyone here and considerable recognition of the attitudes and standards demonstrated by the staff within Starbank.
Achieving Gold IIP status demonstrates to our customers, suppliers and all other stakeholders that we are an excellent organisation with highly skilled and committed employees, and therefore portraying that we are a great company to do business with.
We are now eligible to become ‘IIP Champions’ which as well as being a great honour and would enable us to share experiences with other organisations for the further development of both parties. Something which we hope to move forward with in the near future.
