We are proud to have been awarded the Investor in People (IiP) standard.
Investors in People recognises businesses that achieve success through their people. Over 30,000 UK businesses hold the standard but it is not easy to achieve.
It took over a year of hard work; implementing team plans, creating a learning & development plan that supports every individual alongside the overall Madgex goals and putting robust performance management practices in place to make sure everyone is performing to their best and that they are totally happy and confident to do so. All these efforts are just some elements of what the IiP standard requires. Madgex staff were also interviewed at random as part of the assessment process to assess how they feel about the company and their professional future.
Hanna Smith, our HR Director said “It sounds really cliché, but at Madgex we truly do value our staff and realise that investing in them personally and professionally is the only way to succeed to be the best we can be! Our Ideas & Learning Initiative is a good example where we support personal growth and development of our staff. We give everyone at Madgex 15% of their working time back to spend on creative projects and/or personal development, it’s up to them what they do with the time.” She went on to highlight “Our assessor was really impressed on what we had achieved and in some areas of the IiP framework we had exceeded the standard. She was particularly complimentary about our unique culture and echoed what we all think – that it is a truly lovely place to work!”
We will be re-assessed within the next four years, to ensure that we still qualify to hold the IiP standard.
