Investors in People – Involvement and Empowerment
Strengths & good practices
Everyone felt involved and part of the overall decision making through the Health and Safety committee meetings and the way they were encouraged to provide input at any time. People felt that their opinions were listened to and if possible ways would be found to make the adjustments needed. Appraisals were another occasion to provide input and discuss potential changes.
There is a culture of continuous improvement through ongoing adjustments and changes to improve performance with everyone involved and encouraged to contribute ideas and there were many examples of these being taken on board and rolled out across the company. As a result people feel that they can challenge the ways things work in order to improve performance.
