Hastoe Again Achieves Investors in People Gold Standard

23/11/2015

Hastoe has achieved Investors in People (IiP) Gold for a second time after demonstrating its commitment to investing and developing staff, and building on their achievements and successes. Of the 14,154 organisations nationally who have achieved IiP, only 7% are Gold, making this accreditation yet another addition to Hastoe’s distinctive qualities.

To retain this exceptional standard, Hastoe has demonstrated its desire and commitment to continually improve, by learning, innovating and growing. Hastoe leapt from IiP Bronze in 2009 to Gold standard in 2012. As a learning organisation, Hastoe is delighted to once again be recognised by accreditation of this prestigious international award, and to have demonstrated further improvements from the last review.

Feedback from the IiP assessors stated...

Hastoe Housing Association has once again demonstrated that it deserves to be accredited with Investors in People GOLD with evidence of its commitment to continuous improvement. It has continued to meet the high standard of good business and people development practices amidst a period of great uncertainty in the sector.

Sue Chalkley, Chief Executive of Hastoe, said:

“Retaining IiP Gold reflects that Hastoe is committed to the continued improvement of the business and consistent development of its staff. The IiP standard is widely recognised across the UK and puts Hastoe in a select group. We are always looking at ways to develop our staff and will continue to improve by implementing the recommendations in the IiP report.”
