drpgroup Sets Gold Standard With IIP

The drpgroup has been awarded the highly prestigious Investors in People Gold Status. The assessors delivered their report in September, advancing us from the previously held silver status. The process involved the IIP selecting a cross section of the business for interview around a number of key topics. The extremely positive results in all areas demonstrated the progress weve made to become an even better place to work for our entire team.

The IIP assessors interviewed team members across our three sites in the Midlands, Leeds and London. Each interview covered topics like business leadership, training and development, vision and values, reward, recognition and opportunity for career progression. Each area returned highly positive feedback with the leadership team noted throughout for their supportive approach to the wider team, drive and enthusiasm for the business.

Some key comments delivered in the report read, Everyone described the qualities of managers and they were remarkably consistent across the business.The whole structure of the company has interlocking teams that provide a quality service to its customers and the effect their actions have on others through regular team meetings. Overall people said it was a great place to work because the drpgroup is a good employer, has a friendly and supportive culture, the development opportunities, the career progression and being part of an exciting business. The whole staff acts together as one team and supports each other in every aspect of the business. The team spirit is evident from the moment visitors arrive at the reception desk.
