SMMT secures IIP Gold award

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has been recognised as one of Britain’s best places to work.

It achieved Gold accreditation from Investors in People (IIP), the international benchmark for workplace standards and people management.

After securing Bronze and Silver awards in 2015 and 2022, it secured Gold, being one of just 17% of organisations seeking IIP accreditation to do so, in recognition of its progressive people-focused policies. These include staff engagement in decision-making, investment in career development, flexible working practices, and diversity.

Katie Milbourn, director of SMMT Group HR, said: “Every one of us at SMMT is essential to the group’s success, so we support and develop everyone’s talents to help each other – and the wider sector – continue to thrive. As the voice of the automotive industry in the UK, it’s our duty and mission to set the highest standards, and we strive to ensure our people, with their expertise, experience and dedication, realise their full potential and support our members.”
