‘INVESTORS IN PEOPLE’ AWARDS GOLD ACCREDITATION TO JATO DYNAMICS
‘INVESTORS IN PEOPLE’ GOLD ACCREDITATION PROVIDES A MARK OF EXCELLENCE FOR THE BUSINESS
JATO Dynamics, the world’s leading provider of automotive intelligence, is delighted to announce that the business has been awarded the Investors in People (IIP) Gold Accreditation. This is the highest award level currently held by any of the companies participating in the IIP “best practice” framework and the achievement places JATO in the top 7% for achieving world class business performance through its people.
The award was given following a comprehensive audit and evaluation of JATO’s performance and approach to its people across ten key areas from business strategy, leadership and management strategy, through to recognition & reward and performance measurement. The assessment concluded that JATO has worked hard to develop and embed a business strategy and implementation plan. It found clear evidence that the JATO team are aware, aligned and working to support the goals of the business.
Andy Rothery, CEO of JATO Dynamics commented: “Our people have absolutely embraced the changes we have implemented to work more collaboratively and I am delighted that we have been recognised by Investors In People for the hard work and effort across our business; Investors in People gold accreditation is an outstanding achievement and I am extremely proud to lead a team that is so dedicated to continuously improving the service and solutions that we provide to our clients.”
JATO has been committed to working with IIP for fifteen years and feedback from the Gold assessment praised the company for the enormous transformation visible since the bronze accreditation was awarded in 2012. Clarity of direction across the organisation, structured learning and development resources and strategic performance management, were highlighted as particular achievements, supported by the introduction of business collaboration tools and digital recruitment.
Although this is a UK accreditation, JATO is a global business, with all the additional challenges that time and distance present to achieving business ambitions, and this was recognised throughout the assessment.
Andy Rothery concluded “Our business is going through a period of unprecedented change. To employees, gold accreditation signals a high performing culture. To customers it signals a quality product and service. As a critical part of our development, we will continually strive to develop the skills of our team and to attract and retain the very best talent. Our people are our business and gold makes us stand out from the crowd.”
