The standard is underpinned by the IIP framework which provides up to date good practice in investing in staff and provides the essential skills and effective structures required to develop and support your workforce. IIP enables organisations to benchmark against other organisations. There are four levels of accreditation; Accredited, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
On presenting the award, Peter Russian, CEO of Investors in People Scotland said:
“I would like to congratulate OTHA on their Gold accreditation; this is the sign of a great employer, whose commitment to their community is reflected in their investment in their people. We need more employers like OTHA, both in Greenock, and in Scotland. OTHA should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
