Investor in People
UK Vending Ltd has been recognised as an Investor in People organisation after achieving the Standard in June 2002. UK Vending Ltd embraces a commitment to training and development and looks forward to the bottom-line benefits that improved people performance delivers.
"We are fully committed to developing workforce skills, in order to achieve our wider business aims and objectives in the vending and water cooler sector. We have used the Investor in People planning process to address our needs and have now implemented a training and development programme. We will consistently evaluate this to ensure our workforce has the more up-to-date skills in order that we build on our success."
The Standard is based on four key principles for people development, Commitment to develop employees to achieve business goals and targets, Planning to review training, and development needs required in context of the business, Action to assure relevant steps are taken to meet training and development needs, and Evaluation to measure the outcomes of training and development for individuals and the organisation.
