Gold for Port of Leith Housing Association from Investors in People
IIP praises association’s dedicated staff.
Port of Leith Housing Association has been awarded Gold by Investors in People (IIP) under its new framework for business improvement through people in the UK. Achieving the Gold Accreditation puts PoLHA in the top 7% of all IIP Accredited organisations for exceptional leading, supporting and managing of staff teams across the UK and beyond.
Investors in People praised Port of Leith Housing Association’s dedicated staff and cited its diversification into mid-market rentals; the establishment of its new social enterprise company, Quay Community Improvements; and employees volunteering in the community as clear examples of how the association is aiming to make Leith a great place to be.
The association also received the IIP Health and Wellbeing Award for fostering a healthy and happy staff team.
Keith Anderson, Chief Executive of Port of Leith Housing Association, said:
“This is the first time we have been assessed by Investors in People against its new set of standards, so we are thrilled to have received Gold and to be recognised for our commitment to continuously improving our people and our customers.
“Our staff and Board members are very committed to making Leith a great place in which to live, visit and do business, and to building on our IIP success.”
