Revive! receives IIP accreditation

Revive! has been awarded the Investors in People (IIP) accreditation – an international standard for people management.

The business which has its headquarters in Rugby spent the past 18 months putting systems and procedures in place to meet the rigorous IIP criteria which focuses on how organisations lead, support, manage and develop their people.

Operations director, Terry Mullen explained, ‘It’s a cliché I know but a business is only as good as the people working within it, and our people are our greatest asset. We have always invested in our people but when a business grows as quickly as ours has done it’s important to put in a framework that ensures each individual gets the support and training he or she needs to reach their full potential. In the early days when we only had a few employees it was easy to see how they were doing and chat through any issues as they arose. But as numbers grew and we opened a second office those informal adhoc ways had to change.’

New initiatives introduced include an employee of the month award where nominations are invited from colleagues to name the Revive! member of staff who deserves the accolade. Winners receive shopping vouchers and details of all the nominations are shared with the whole team. One of the first to win the Revive! Employee of the Month Award was Amanda Paul from the Revive! customer service team.

To achieve IIP accreditation Revive! put together a portfolio which was assessed by an outside accreditation body. Terry and her business partner, managing director, Mark Llewellyn were presented with their IIP plaque by Bob Morrison.
