Investors in People enables organisations to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.
Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said:
“We’d like to congratulate Helistrat, Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. Helistrat should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
Commenting on the award, Nicki Crowhurst, Head of Operations and HR at Helistrat, said:
“We are thrilled to have been awarded this prestigious accreditation of an Investor in People. Right from the start, we had the clear objective of wanting Helistrat to be known as an employer of choice and as such, undertook the ‘Helistrat People Project’ which looked at everything people-related – benefits, talent development, how we communicated with our employees, the working environment we were creating.
We felt that the Investors in People framework underpinned the culture we were trying to develop and therefore it seemed a natural next step to work towards official recognition. Never ones to rest on our laurels though, we now have a 3-year plan in place to go on and achieve the Investors in People Gold Standard and greatly look forward to this challenge.”
