About Lauras International / Awards & Recognition

Gold Standard Investors in People

iip_logo2Investors in People is the UK’s leading accreditation for business improvement through people management, and provides a wealth of resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow, with a focus on good people making great business. The Gold Standard is the highest level of accreditation and is the sign of great people management practice, and demonstrates a commitment to staff development and shows an organisation committed to being the very best it can be.

Lauras International is the only Lean Improvement company within the UK to achieve the award, which we believe is testament to engaging clients with our partnership approach. As a company we strive to continually improve our framework and pass on our expertise to our clients. We will never stop improving. We value and encourage the contribution that our employees can make in shaping the direction and progressing the development of our company and recognise that the success and profitability of our business relies on our people.

 

Testimonials

A key learning for me was that delegation is as much about the development of others as it is removing an action from my list. I now think of delegation as an opportunity for my team to develop and try new things. The more I do it, the more effective it is. Delegation is now one of my key management tools.

Front Line Manager on Aspire Programme

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by Lauras International that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.
