We are pleased to announce that Box UK has been crowned the winner of the “Excellence in leadership and management (up to 249 employees)” category at the annual Investors in People (IIP) Awards 2016, the leading industry event recognising high performance in people management.
The awards, which received over 300 entries from organisations working in a variety of sectors and locations across the globe, celebrate the best people management practices among businesses. Commenting on the quality of this year’s entries, Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “Once again we have been overwhelmed by the number and calibre of entries received for the Investors in People Awards. It’s fantastic to see so many organisations nominated for outperforming in their sector, demonstrating great people management practice and a commitment to staff development, all winners should feel extremely proud.”
In winning the “Excellence in leadership and management” category Box UK, which was awarded IIP Silver accreditation in 2014, has been recognised as an organisation that invests in its people to strengthen leadership capability at every level of the organisation. This has been achieved through the implementation of a number of initiatives that extend and enhance the leadership function within the organisation, such as improved communication and feedback channels, a formal learning and development programme, and opportunities for both horizontal and vertical career progression.
The judging panel praised many of these initiatives in their feedback, commenting that Box UK demonstrated: “An interesting approach to engaging employees while going through a rebrand programme. Box UK has a bespoke leadership programme that enables the organisation to identify potential leaders across the organisation and nurture these individuals to help them successfully move into management roles.”
Box UK’s Managing Director, Benno Wasserstein, said in response to the news: “We’re delighted to have achieved such success in the Investors in People Awards, which saw an incredible number of high-profile, international entries. Our people are absolutely central to our continued success as a business, so it means a great deal to have been recognised as a leader in this field. We are extremely proud of the work we have done so far, but of course this is an on-going journey of continuous improvement, and we’re already excited about our future plans to build on the fantastic results we’ve achieved so far.”
