Chamber News 31st August 2015
Commenting on the achievement chief exec Bob Davidson said
“our progression from silver was due to a number of factors including: 1) The enhanced training and development of staff including MBA, business degree, social media training & customer service mentoring. 2) The gender balance of the team is now 50/50 with the Board of Directors getting closer to that ratio also. 3) Our work from a CSR perspective including staff volunteering in young people related projects and the support we give to the local community also contributed to our progression.”
Chamber chief Bob Davidson who has now been in the post for 6 years continued by saying “We’re always looking for ways that show our members we are a well-run, progressive and innovative organisation – that cares about its staff. We’re a small team, and like all small businesses, to be effective we need to trust each other, work hard and respect each other as individuals. We have developed that culture over a number of years and work hard to protect it. The whole team & Board are very proud of our IIP Gold accreditation.”
Chamber president Audrey Cumberford commented …“Achieving the gold standard awarded by Investors in People reflects our commitment to our staff. The success and performance of the Chamber would not be possible without the dedication, skills, talent and professionalism of the Chamber team.”
This recent accreditation follows shortly after the Chamber became the 1st Chamber in the UK to become Living Wage Accredited.
