Manchester City Awarded Bronze Investors in People StatusJohn Newsham
We are delighted to confirm that following the recent assessment we have been awarded Bronze Investors in People recognition. The award recognises our additional achievement beyond the IIP Standard and is held by only about 5% of Investors in People organisations. We are the only Premier League football club to have Investors in People recognition. The award is a recognition of the hard work, commitment and achievement of everyone who works here.
The assessors said “This was an excellent performance at a first assessment against a rigorous, internationally recognised business improvement framework.”
We would like to thank the members of the Investors in People team who conducted the initial internal assessment and helped shape the action plan prior to final assessment. We would also like to thank everyone who gave feedback to the assessors. In total, more than 90 people were interviewed as part of the overall assessment process and their honest, thoughtful and constructive feedback gave the assessors a very clear picture of our organisation.
We will now use the feedback from our staff and the assessors to support further progress towards our aim of high performance working, particularly in the areas of learning and development, management support and communication.
