Arqiva accredited by Investors in People as ‘We invest in people, gold’

Arqiva, the leading UK communications infrastructure company, has been awarded a We invest in people, gold accreditation by Investors in People (IIP).  

20 November, 2019, UK, London: Arqiva, the leading UK communications infrastructure company, has been awarded a We invest in people, gold accreditation by Investors in People (IIP).   

IIP accreditation recognises those organisations that have achieved the highest standards in their areas, spanning all elements of what it means to be an Investor in People, from Leadership and Management to Employee Engagement, Social Responsibility and Learning and Development.  

Not only has the Winchester-based firm now maintained its gold accreditation for the last 11 years, it also received an ‘IIP Health and Wellbeing Good Practice Award’ for its work investing in the health and wellbeing of colleagues across the business.   

We invest in people, gold accreditation means that an organisation has the policies in place but, more than that, it means everyone – from CEO to apprentice takes ownership for making them come to life.   

Only 16% of IIP accredited organisations achieve Gold.  

Arqiva’s apprenticeship programme was also a finalist in the IIP Awards last night (19 Nov) in London. 

“This is a fantastic week for everyone at Arqiva. I’m delighted that we have maintained our Gold IIP accreditation. It’s an old adage, but it’s true, that a business is nothing without its people and it’s great to read in feedback that our people initiatives, including health and wellbeing, are being recognised and valued by our colleagues.”   

 “We’d like to congratulate Arqiva. Gold accreditation on ‘We invest in people’ is a fantastic effort for any organisation, and places Arqiva in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.
