Whistl awarded Investors in People accreditation

Mail, parcels, e-fulfilment and contact centres company Whistl has been awarded the Investors in People ‘We Invest in People’ standard accreditation. Though a longstanding member of IIP for many years, the recent audit now includes the two acquisitions Whistl Fulfilment and Parcelhub.

“We’d like to congratulate Whistl. Being accredited with ‘We invest in people’ is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places Whistl in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people,” commented Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People.

The accreditation means that the principles and practises around supporting its staff are in place and that they all understand how to use them to improve their output. IIP research shows that such supporting practices deliver sustainable results, with up to a 17% increase in productivity and 21% greater profitability.

“Our Learning and Development team is committed to ensuring that everyone in Whistl has the knowledge, skills and expertise to perform to consistently high standards and achieve their potential. Despite the challenges of the past year, we have been able to secure this updated accreditation across the expanded business and I am grateful to everyone for their efforts,” added Nick Wells, CEO, Whistl.
