Townfield Care is pleased to announce that it has once again been awarded the Investors In People Accreditation, in recognition of its ongoing commitment to excellence. The company has held the accreditation for 15 years since 2001.
The Investors in People (IIP) Standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results. Based on 25 years of leading practice, the Investors in People Standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. The Investors in People accreditation has been the sign of excellence, a great employer and an outperforming place to work.
Michael Timmins, Director at Townfield Care, commented, “We’re very pleased to have achieved this accreditation again. It demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that we put people first, which results in a better trained and more confident staff group which is better able to deliver a high standard of care and support. The report we had back from IIP indicated that we have shown a marked improvement since our last review, which is fantastic news and puts us in good stead to focus on achieving our goals in future.”
To achieve the re-accreditation, a selection of staff at across the company, from senior management to the public-facing carers, took part in 2 days of interviews designed to review and evaluate the company’s strategy, training plans and leadership. The process takes place every three years.
Townfield Care pride themselves on offering high-quality, person-centred care which is tailored to the needs of the individual.
