Springhill Care Group has been awarded the prestigious Platinum award from community interest company, Investors in People (IIP).
The award, which is IIP’s highest accolade, is held by just 2% of organisations assessed.
Donna Briggs, managing director of Springhill Care Group, said: “This is great news for all staff because they help to make us the organisation we are. I’d like to thank our staff team for creating the culture of excellence we have which ultimately ensures that the quality of care for our residents is second-to-none.”
Assessors highlighted how the ‘high performing’ group had further strengthened its organisation since it was awarded a Gold standard three years ago.
Built on the three pillars of leading, supporting and improving, the IIP framework sets out what it takes to deliver a people management system that enables organisations to succeed by realising the potential of their people.
As part of the IIP online assessment process, the care group exceeded both the IIP average and care sector benchmarks with an organisational benchmark score of 799 out of 900, where the care sector average is 765 and overall IIP average is 724.
Chris Jones, Director of Operations at IIP, said: “Platinum is our highest award and recognises high performance achieved through integrated people practices. Springhill Care Group first achieved Investors in People in 1995 and since then we have seen the group go from strength to strength.”
