Webtec, the Cambridgeshire based specialist manufacturer of hydraulic measurement and control products is very proud to achieve the Investors In People Silver award standard. The company has been working hard to achieve the high standards set for this prestigious global award since it gained IIP accreditation in 2017.
The Investors in People accreditation has been developed and refined over nearly 30 years to help companies, leaders and employees work together to create better, more productive workplaces. Webtec’s company values and dedication to increasing the knowledge and skills of its employees, customers and its vision to ‘inspire others to enjoy the challenges that engineering brings’ through engaging with the wider community are very much in-line with the IiP’s ‘Leading, Supporting and Improving’ standards.
The company was commended for engaging with colleagues developing internal initiatives such as the Place to Work Group and Webtec Wellbeing, as well as the emphasis on innovation and continuous improvement.
On receiving the award, Jo Middleton, Webtec’s HR Business Partner commented, "Achieving IiP Silver is a fantastic step forward for us. There is great commitment amongst our staff, and we are always seeking ways to improve and develop. I am looking forward to the next phase in our IiP journey”.
Martin Cuthbert, Webtec MD, said, “Especially during the really challenging conditions we are all currently facing, we are really proud that the hard-work of the Webtec team to continuously improve and of the managers to delegate and empower more people in the company to lead change has been recognised by this year’s IiP assessment”.
Nicholas Smith, the IiP Practitioner who conducted the assessment, said, “It has been inspiring to see the progress that the team at Webtec have made in the development of their culture and management practices and the benefits that these have delivered for the business. Webtec’s attainment of the Silver award level is well deserved and I look forward to working with them as they continue their journey”.
Since 1991 Investors in People have accredited more than 50,000 organisations and the IiP accreditation is recognised in 66 countries around the world, making it the global benchmark when it comes to people management.
