Commenting on the award, Susan Houseman, Director of Business Development at Ribby Hall Village said:
“As an IIP accredited company for the last twelve years, Ribby Hall Village has never been one to shy away from a challenge. So, when we were given the choice to either reaccredit against the existing IIP standard or be one of the first companies to benchmark ourselves to the NEW standard…we knew we had to go for the new one!
The standard fits nicely with our Employee Engagement initiatives which recognise and reward performance, along with our Training Portfolio designed to deliver continuous improvement. All that we do for our people comes together as we work to the new standard of Leading, Supporting and Improving.”
Steve Burrows, Managing Director of Investors in People North of England said:
“This is a fantastic achievement for Ribby Hall Village and I would like to congratulate all of the team. We believe that your people make the difference and by investing in them you are looking to create sustainable success.

With their Gold accreditation success, Ribby Hall Village is certainly working to realise their people potential.”
