HS1 Ltd awarded We Invest in People gold accreditation
In recognition for its commitment to improving business standards and people management, HS1 Ltd – the owner and operator of the high-speed rail linking London, Kent and the Channel Tunnel – has been awarded the prestigious We invest in People gold accreditation by Investors in People.
The We invest in People accreditation is one of the most prominent standards for people management in the world, making it a global benchmark when it comes to investing in people and delivering sustainable results.
HS1 Ltd achieved silver accreditation in 2017 and with the implementation of the HS1 ‘People Strategy’ in 2019, this put the spotlight on development, progression and performance which have enabled the business to achieve the gold standard.
HS1 Ltd has now achieved gold standard – acheived by only 17 per cent of organisations.
Lucy Clarke-Bodicoat, General Counsel & Corporate Services Director at HS1 Ltd, said: “We are extremely proud to have been awarded the prestigious We invest in People gold accreditation. At HS1 Ltd, we pride ourselves on creating an inclusive culture and this award is recognition of our excellent progress, particularly during this difficult period. We have worked closely with all members of staff to develop our business plans, improve retention, drive high levels of engagement and enhance our training strategies to ensure all of our staff continue to feel happy and appreciated at work. I would like to thank my colleagues for their hard work on securing this achievement and their continued efforts to improve the business.”
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, commented: “We’d like to congratulate HS1 Ltd on this achievement. Gold accreditation on We invest in People is a fantastic effort for any organisation, and places HS1 Ltd in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”
