Wales & West Housing shortlisted for prestigious Investors in People Awards 2018
Wales & West Housing has been shortlisted for Platinum Employer of the Year in the Investors in People Awards 2018, which recognise leaders in people management practice globally.
WWH is a finalist in the category for organisations with more than 250 employees that have been awarded the IIP Platinum Standard – the country’s highest mark of excellence for business and people management.
In February WWH became the first in Wales to achieve the Platinum Standard, recognising the organisation not only as a great employer to its 450 staff, but also as “making a difference” to the 20,000 residents living in their homes and communities.
The Investors in People Awards celebrate the best people management practices amongst Investors in People accredited businesses. The Finalists represent the best performers in people management worldwide. The winners will be celebrated at an awards ceremony in London on 28 November 2018.
