Zibrant awarded accreditation for investing in employees
Zibrant has been awarded a ‘Gold’ accreditation by industry body Investors in People. The accolade comes in recognition of Zibrant’s commitment to developing, supporting and motivating its employees.
The event management and venue find agency becomes part of the 3% of organisations in the UK recognised in this way, meeting 165 different standards which included commitment to values, personal development and social responsibility.
Helen McCabe, Managing Director, Operations at Zibrant, says: “This is a fantastic endorsement of our continued commitment to helping our colleagues be the best that they can be. We are committed to providing a workplace where people feel they are given the right opportunities to succeed through reward, training and engagement. We know this is not just important to us as a business, but also to our customers and to be one of the 3% of businesses to achieve IIP Gold is outstanding. We’re also incredibly proud to have achieved Gold accreditation for the second consecutive time.”
Zibrant’s commitment to its staff has also been reflected in a number of employees returning to the agency after a period of gaining experience elsewhere in the industry. In 2013, 20% of individuals who left Zibrant returned to the agency.
Fay Sharpe, Managing Director of Zibrant comments: “It’s fantastic to be acknowledged for investing in our employees, as creating and maintaining a supportive work environment has been one of our key priorities as the business has grown. We’re also pleased to welcome back a number of staff members, who bring with them expertise gained in other organisations; these returning team-members demonstrate that our commitment to developing and motivating employees is also recognised internally.”
