Specialist conference and events arm of Loughborough University, imago, has retained its Investors in People Gold accreditation following its latest audit.
imago first achieved Investors in People Gold accreditation two years ago. The portfolio employs 300 people across its venues – Burleigh Court, Holywell Park, The Link Hotel and Loughborough University campus.
Investors in People is a leading accreditation for business improvement through people management, and provides a framework to help businesses get the best from their people.
Head of sales and marketing at imago, Emma Boynton, says: “Investors in People is a commitment to the people that make your business a success. Measuring our performance against the standard’s objectives creates clarity around where we can improve and channel our resources more effectively. This allows us to harness the talent of staff towards achieving company goals. To retain our Gold accreditation recognises the systems we have in place and demonstrates our ability to deliver excellence to customers.”
Kay England, imago’s chief executive adds: “Having Investors in People Gold improves our company. It helps recruit high quality people and attracts and retains more customers. It is much, much more than an award.”
Mike Stirzaker, director of Prescience Business Learning, said: “As a leadership development provider, we work at many venues throughout the UK on behalf of our various clients. imago is our preferred choice and the benchmark against which we assess all others. Not only does imago have the right facilities, what makes it stand out is the capability and support of the staff in ensuring everything works, and works well. Such levels of customer service don’t happen by chance and, as learning and development practitioners ourselves, we recognise the focus given to training and development in helping establish a culture that is personable, welcoming and at all times highly professional.”
