Yorkshire’s ITS Group (ITS) has been named as a global leader in people management after making the shortlist for this year’s International Investors in People Awards.

”It is a privilege to be shortlisted for this award; a clear indication of the dedication and hard work the team has invested in the business."

ITS will compete against firms from across the globe at a spectacular ceremony in London on 29 June 2016, when the business will learn whether it has won the Excellence in Leadership and Management (up to 249 employees) category.

The awards received more than 300 entries from organisations of all sizes worldwide and celebrate the best people management practices amongst Investors in People accredited businesses.

Finalists have demonstrated investment in their people to strengthen leadership capability at every level of their organization.

ITS was shortlisted for the achievements of its leadership team and behaviours of its CEO which have engendered a culture of trust, transparency and encourage employees to share best practice. This is a far cry from the position the business found itself in just three years ago, when an Ofsted inspection found the training provider’s delivery to be inadequate.

Dr. Chris Payne, ITS CEO, said : ”It is a privilege to be shortlisted for this award; a clear indication of the dedication and hard work the team has invested in the business.

“We are delighted and privileged to be shortlisted for the IIP Excellence in Leadership and Management Award.

“We have been on a journey together and this accolade is for everyone within ITS”.

2016 is the 25th year of Investors in People and are recognizing organisations that have achieved continuous accreditation with Investors in People.  ITS Group will be awarded at the ceremony with a trophy and certificate for achieving 20 years of continuous accreditation.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “Once again we have been overwhelmed by the number and calibre of entries received for the Investors in People Awards.

“It’s fantastic to see so many organisations nominated for outperforming in their sector, demonstrating great people management practice and a commitment to staff development.”
