Three local companies have received Investors in People accreditation at an award celebration held in Hillsborough Castle.
Drummaul House, based in Randalstown and employing 58 people; Glenkeen House Private Nursing Home, based in Randalstown and employing 54 people; and Jolly Tots, based in Antrim and employing 34 people, are among 38 organisations from across Northern Ireland celebrating Investors in People (IiP) accreditation.
Dr Stephen Farry, Minister for Employment and Learning, congratulated all the organisations receiving the prestigious business award at the celebration event.
Mr Farry said: “This occasion celebrates Northern Ireland businesses proving their excellence. Organisations succeed by realising the potential of their people. The organisations receiving Investors in People accreditation today are proof of that. We know that organisations that invest in their people are much more likely to survive tough times and times of change.
“People’s strengths, people’s ambitions and people’s ideas are the engine of success. The benchmark for any well-run organisation, IiP accreditation signals to customers and employees your commitment to good business and people management excellence.
“If you develop the skills of your employees and improve your employee engagement, success will ultimately follow. At Investors in People, everything is informed by one principle: good people make a great business.”
