The National Fostering Agency Group has achieved the celebrated Investors In People Gold Standard Award.
The award follows an intensive assessment process over fourteen days involving interviews with over 150 staff and carers. Less than three per cent of organisations with IIP achieve Gold Standard accreditation.
It has been awarded to fewer than 700 organisations throughout the United Kingdom and provides a solid foundation for further growth and development. It is only awarded to well-run companies that meet set criteria, including learning and development, leadership skills and recognition and reward of staff.
John Telfer, Managing Director of Investors in People South, said: “The current economic climate makes it even more important that an organisation adapts to the prevailing environment. The NFA Group is a shining example that proves organisations can achieve great things in challenging times.”
Suzanne Robson, HR Director for the NFA Group said: “Investors in People reflects the consistency of our processes across the organisation regarding the very best in people practices and reflects the overarching team culture throughout NFA and its Partner Agencies.”
Iain Anderson, NFA Group Chief Executive said: “I am delighted for everyone at the National Fostering Agency Group as this extremely prestigious award validates the excellent practices in terms of potential and existing employees and carers. It demonstrates what a great and well trusted service NFA Group delivers day in and day out to ensure the very best possible outcomes for the children and young people in its care.”
