The Trust gets GOLD again!
The Trust achieved the Investors In People Gold Standard again! Every three years the Trust is required to undergo re-assessment against the IIP standards.
The assessment was undertaken over five days between 17th and 23rd September. The assessor interviewed approximately thirty staff, representing every service and job role including Trustees and senior management and representing a range of experience and length of service with the Trust. Information was provided from board papers and policy documents to verify the evidence. The assessor reported that throughout the interview process he was
‘Struck by the depth of commitment from all staff and a genuine desire to offer the very best for the Trust’s users.’
‘It was abundantly clear that people genuinely enjoyed working with the service users and financial reward was far from being the prime motivator.’
Kim Crowe, Chief Executive commented “I am delighted that Parkhaven Trust has been recognised as an employer that invests in the development of staff. We employ some fantastic people who care for our service users 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It’s the dedication and commitment of our staff to do a great job that sets us apart.”
