The Wrexham-based business has achieved Investors in People ‘We invest in people’standard accreditation after successfully passing an assessment covering topics such as leadership, trust and company values.
As part of the assessment process, several members of the Riello UPS team met with representatives from Investors in People to discuss job satisfaction, work-life balance and the opportunity to develop new skills.
The rigorous evaluation praised Riello UPS for its strong commitment to developing high-performing teams and providing opportunities for learning and training, along with how the company structures staff roles and delivers continuous improvement.
Obtaining the standard accreditation means Riello UPS has the right principles and practices in place. The power protection specialist will now work with Investors in People over a three-year programme and build on these strong foundations to ensure a culture of continuous improvement and putting people first is embedded throughout the entire business.
