A Bristol-based waste management company is celebrating after achieving IIP (Investors in People) Accreditation.
Waste Source, which was 12 staff and was founded in 2010 to make waste disposal a simpler, cheaper and more effective process for clients, has achieved the highest standard for people management.
Investors in People represents 27 years of people management excellence to raise the standard of people management for the benefit of everyone. The internationally recognised accreditation is held by more than 11,000 organisations across 75 countries who lead, support and manage people well.
It is achieved through a rigorous and objective assessment to determine performance against the Standard for people management.
Research has shown that IIP accredited organisations are more profitable, more sustainable and more optimistic about the future.
Chris Holland, Managing Director of Waste Source, said: “We are delighted to have achieved IIP Accreditation and have really felt the benefit of going through the whole process. To come out the end of it with a recognised accreditation that will expand our profile and help us recruit new customers and staff alike is absolutely brilliant.
“Investors in people is all about continuous improvement, which we strive for at Waste Source. At the end of the day, the service we provide is the most important thing and our staff are the ones who deliver it, so putting health and wellbeing central to our business agenda is vital.”
It is the latest piece of good news for Waste Source, with the company recently announcing a 32 percent increase in turnover in its last financial year, rising from £3.8m-5m.
Chris added: “It really is an exciting time at Waste Source and we are looking to kick on again. The IIP Accreditation is another feather in our cap and will contribute to us moving forward in the future.”
Waste Source was founded by Chris Holland and Jon Free with the aim to help businesses reduce waste costs and increase recycling rates and has numerous clients in the retail, hospitality, property and construction sectors who are all making savings month on month.
