Bridgestone Awarded Investors in People accreditation
Bridgestone UK has been awarded the Investors in People (IIP) accreditation, following a detailed audit of the company’s working practices. The IIP standard is a government-led business improvement tool designed to advance an organisation’s performance through its people, and provides strategies for managing people effectively, nurturing talent, and ensuring equal opportunities.
“This award is a ‘pat-on-the-back’ for the company and its employees,” said John McNaught, managing director of Bridgestone UK. “It shows that we are committed to providing our employees with a stimulating and rewarding place to work, communicating effectively, and working hard to provide opportunities for personal development.” The company will now be the subject of three-yearly independent inspections to confirm the maintenance of high standards in order for the IIP accreditation to be retained.
