Welland Medical go for gold!
Welland Medical, a Manor Royal based manufacturing company, is celebrating being reaccredited with an Investors in People (IIP) Gold award.
Having first attained Gold IIP accreditation in 2012, Welland Medical were delighted to receive the news that their re-assessment for the internationally recognised accreditation for establishments who put staff at their core had been successful. Commenting on the company's bid for gold, Managing Director, Chris Primett, said: "We couldn't be prouder of our achievement. Investing in our people is incredibly important to us, we have such talented staff and we are continuously striving to make this a place where colleagues feel valued and supported."
The re-assessment process, which saw an IIP assessor visiting the company's headquarters to meet with staff and observe day-to-day activities, culminated in a positive report for the manufacturer of stoma care solutions, with the assessor commenting: "This has been a very positive IIP review for Welland Medical and the company is to be congratulated on maintaining its Gold level accreditation".
The assessor went on to say: "There are open and professional relationships throughout the company. The directors are very visible and the ethos is that everybody has an important part to play in the company, whatever the role."
These positive comments were mirrored by the company's growing workforce, who took part in online surveys and face to face interviews as part of the assessment process, with one employee commenting: "It's the best company I've worked for. There is a real sense of progression. If you stay here you will grow and the company will help you always."
