Gold for ADP: The practice retains its Investors in People Gold Accreditation

8TH September 2022


People are at the heart of our business and investing in our co-owners has always been high on the agenda. ADP has been an accredited Investor in People for many years and Gold accredited since 2016. Following our recent assessment we’re really pleased to have not only maintained our Gold standard but also to have improved our score from our previous 2019 assessment. Our new score is above both the IiP average and the architecture and engineering industry average.

The reaccreditation process involves employees completing an online survey which is supported by a number of one-to-one interviews.  There are nine Investors in People topics covered, these are leading and inspiring people; living the values, empowerment and involvement; managing performance; reward and recognition; structuring work; building capability; delivering continuous improvement and creating sustainable success.

Investors in People Practitioner, Andy Moreland said ‘ADP continue to take the development and investment in their people very seriously. They have achieved a solid gold accreditation and are now performing up there with the top of their sector. Our face-to-face surveys confirmed that they have a clear and shared purpose, a clear sense of belonging, and there is a strong emphasis upon individual’s career development and progression. Their people felt it was always a good place to work, but it’s now even better.’

Here are just a few of the results from the survey that we’re really proud of:

  • 100% of people feel your organisation communicates the organisation’s ambition.
  • 99% of people understand the vision and objectives at your organisation.
  • 99% of people think your organisation has a plan for the future.
  • 98% of people feel their role enables them to work well with others.
  • 97% of people see their work as interesting.
  • 97% of people feel trusted to make decisions in their role.

While we’re delighted with the positive results, another important benefit of the process is getting feedback on elements we can improve. We’ve already started making progress in some of these areas and aim to keep making ADP an even better place to work.
