We are delighted to announce that following our recent application and rigorous assessment we have successfully achieved the Investors in People Bronze Accreditation.


Gaining Investors in People (IIP) makes a statement about the kind of organisation we are, the way we operate and the values that drive us forward as a company.

This prestigious accreditation not only sets us apart from our competitors, but inspires others, as well as helping to attract new talents, clients and business whilst improving employee engagement and motivation. Investors in People accreditations are recognised across the world as a mark of excellence.

Only 1,123 organisations in the world have achieved IIP Bronze status like us. That’s just 7% of the 15,314 IIP accredited organisations globally. 80% achieve the Standard.

We are proud to invest in the continued development and training of all our employees, ensuring a hard-working diverse and varied workforce at Gully Howard Technical.

Levels of Accreditation:

A) The Standard:

This Standard is the foundation of people management excellence and is considered a benchmark for organisations. Organisations must meet evidence requirements set from the core Framework to achieve this level of accreditation.

B) Beyond the Standard:

Organisations that go beyond ‘The Standard’ level of excellence and meet all evidence requirements are then eligible for additional levels of Accreditation. This progresses from Bronze, Silver to Gold. We are delighted to be Accredited Bronze level at our first application.

IIP is a process of continued assessment, considered a business improvement and benchmarking tool. We are confident that with our hard-working employees, clear vision and culture we will successfully progress to the highest level of accreditation. We will be applying for the Investors in People Silver Accreditation in early summer 2015.
