Portmeirion Group lands people award

Stoke-on-Trent based homewares company, Portmeirion Group, awarded prestigious Silver Standard

Stoke-on-Trent based homewares company, Portmeirion Group, is delighted to announce that it has received official recognition as an Investor in People (IIP) at silver level.

The prestigious accreditation is recognised across the world as a mark of excellence and is awarded to businesses for their high performance through people.

To achieve the exceptional silver standard, Portmeirion Group, demonstrated how the business met an additional 118 requirements, in addition to the 39 requirements needed for core standard. This included demonstrating that the company was working proactively to increase employee engagement levels; has an excellent approach to employee health and wellbeing; and has a strong approach to enhancing skills through a variety of development opportunities.

This esteemed recognition comes hot on the heels of the Group’s Investment in Young People Award, which the company received earlier this year for its commitment to the development of employability skills in young people, under 25.

Sam Pearce, HR Manager at Portmeirion Group, said: “Both the Investor in People and the Investment in Young People Award demonstrate just how committed we are as a Group to work with and develop our employees. They will both, help us to raise the profile of Portmeirion Group as an employer of choice and exemplifies good practice, while boosting working culture, increasing employee engagement and encouraging great leadership.” 

Formed in 1991, Investors in People was established by the UK Government to help organisations get the best from their people. The standards are now at the cutting edge of people management excellence, and its accreditation is proudly held by over 15,000 organisations across 75 countries.
