DBC Training are proud to have achieved the We invest in people, gold accreditation, a level achieved by only 17% of accredited organisations globally.
Investors in People is an internationally-recognised standard for people management, aiming deliver an engaged and productive workplace by making work life better in companies. Gold accreditation means that we’ve got the right policies and processes in place but more than that, it means everyone – from the Managing Director to our apprentices takes ownership for making them come to life. It also shows how we care for our people and invest in their future with us, through initiatives such as our Rising Sparks programme.
DBC Training were established in 2000 to work to support people into employment and skills. We work with a broad spectrum of clients and learners, supporting businesses to recruit and upskill people to achieve their potential. DBC Training’s key ambition is to be an innovative market leader who excels at creating flexible approaches to an ever-changing labour market; through delivering quality advice and guidance, training and business solutions to "deliver better choices and create brighter futures”.
Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate DBC Training. Gold accreditation on We invest in people is a fantastic effort for any organisation, and places DBC Training in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”
Commenting on the award, Kerry Bentley, Managing Director, said: “We want to thank our people for their contribution and dedication because this is a great achievement for all of us. Only 17% of organisations achieve gold and at the crux of it, it means that every single person is involved in supporting each other and is doing their best to make work better. Our We invest in people assessment was a great opportunity for us to hear from our people and we’ve learnt a lot from what they told us, as there’s always something to learn. This is just the start for us as we’ve got recommendations and an action plan to ensure that we can keep making changes, keep improving and keep moving forward. Congratulations to all of our people at DBC! You made work better.”
About Investors in People
Most of us will spend around 80,000 hours at work in our lifetimes.
For something that takes up that much of our time, we think people deserve to get more out of it than just a regular pay cheque. That's why we've already helped more than 11 million people across 75 countries to make work better. And you know what, we’re just getting started…
How are we doing that?
We’re a community interest company, which means we put our purpose before our profits. That means everything we do and every direction we take is done to make work better.
Organisations that meet the We invest in our people framework are proud to display their accreditation to the world.
Because they understand that it’s people that make work better.
