We are delighted to announce that Safety Media has achieved the Investors in People Gold Award meaning we join an elite few who have Gold Investors in People Status.
Investors in People is an international quality standard awarded to organisations who aim to get the best from their employees, are at the cutting edge of people management excellence and demonstrate commitment to building a positive culture within their organisation.
Achieving Gold additional accreditation represents achievement of world class best practice and shows Safety Media to be a truly first class organisation operating at the highest levels of people management practice.
It was noted as part of the review process that Safety Media has transformed over the last four years into a young, dynamic, agile and ambitious business poised to achieve success across a global landscape. Some of the feedback given included:
“It is extremely rare to come across an organisation free of politics and fully collaborative, with a true learning culture.”
“It is pleasing to see an organisation which does not talk in terms of ‘talent’ and ‘spotting rising stars’, but rather seeks to bring out the very best in every single individual, and truly aspires that everyone should be able to excel.”
Chairman, Bill Roberts, commented:
“I am extremely proud of everything we have achieved at Safety Media and receiving this recognition is the icing on the cake. We are a true team here and everyone genuinely wants the business to succeed and can feel proud to celebrate in our successes.”
Safety Media first achieved Investors in People status in 2011 and by leaping from Standard to Gold in such a short time frame is testament to the changes that the business has implemented over the last 4 years.
Toby Roberts, Managing Director of Safety Media was delighted with the award and commented:
“It is very satisfying to have an external body such as Investors in People recognise what we have always believed Safety Media to be; an excellent place to work where people are rewarded for their hard work and enthusiasm and individuality is celebrated not stifled.”
The assessor met with over half of Safety Media’s employees across each department and has fed back comments to the management team such as:
“…most striking is the business’s commitment to investing time in its employees.”
“…there are stars and specialists at every level…the business is poised to perform, and perform very well.”
“I have rarely met a business where people are so trusted and encouraged to take ownership of their roles.”
“Communication in Safety Media Ltd is second to none in my experience.”
The business is dedicated to continuous improvement and are therefore keen to be seen as an employer of choice for the best people with the right values. If you feel you would like to be part of the team here at Safety Media keep an eye on our recruitment pages for opportunities as they arise.
