We're very proud to have recently been awarded Investors in People Silver which demonstrates our commitment to high performance through good people management.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate Children North East, Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. Children North East should be extremely proud of their achievement.”

Steve Burrows, Managing Director of Investors in People North of England delivered by IDG said: “This is a fantastic achievement for Children North East and I would like to congratulate all of the team. We believe that your people make the difference and by investing in them you are looking to create sustainable success. IIP is designed to help organisations and their people to realise potential, providing a simple road map for excellence. With their Silver accreditation, Children North East is certainly working to realise their people potential.”

Commenting on our achievement, Jeremy Cripps, Chief Executive of Children North East said: “We are extremely happy to have been awarded Investors in People Silver.  In a competitive world it can be hard to know how we compare to other organisations so Investors in People is a really important way for us to ensure we are up to the mark.

We couldn’t keep making the difference we do without the committed staff and volunteers working for the Charity and I am pleased that IIP have acknowledged the support we continue to offer to all our staff and volunteers.”
