In 2018 we started the journey to focus on our biggest asset, our people, resulting in us obtaining Silver status. 3 years on we have some amazing news that we are so proud of. Starting off 2022 as we mean to go on, we are delighted to announce that Arc have successfully achieved the prestigious Investors in People (IIP) Gold Accreditation (yes that’s right – GOLD!)
This award is a true recognition of our absolute commitment to our people and teams, and we are super keen to share this fantastic news with you!
Over 50,000 organisations have been assessed by IIP in over 66 countries with only 16% achieving gold. A Gold accreditation says that Arc’s people and leadership team take full ownership of the practices we have in place to support our people. We are actively trying to make work even better for everyone. Given the challenging times we are all facing this is a huge achievement and an indicator of how strong our culture and values are throughout our business strategy, ethos and our colleagues.
We are nothing without our brilliant Arc team. They ensure that we live up to our company vision of shaping the world of flexible work into a better place for all. This accreditation recognises our understanding that our colleagues are our most valuable asset and acknowledges our commitment to investing in supporting and developing the people and teams within the organisation who make a difference for our clients and candidates every day.
I am proud to say that we genuinely care about our staff, we put time and effort into every individual and always make sure we have the necessary support and training in place to help them achieve both their personal and professional goals. IIP Gold wouldn’t have been possible without our clients and candidates who continue to trust and rely on our service, professionalism, and attentive approach and we owe a huge thank you to every person who has worked with Arc over the years. This wouldn’t have been possible without you.
