Bassadone Automotive Group has been awarded platinum accreditation for the Investors in People standard. This is the first time that any company in Gibraltar has achieved the Platinum award and demonstrates the company’s commitment to maintaining continued high performance through good people management. There are four levels of accreditation: Accredited, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Previously the company had achieved the IIP Gold award. Of the approximately 10,000 organisations around the world accredited by Investors in People, only 205 have achieved the Gold standard and only 100 have achieved the Platinum standard. Bassadone Automotive Group is just one of six companies outside the UK to have achieved the Platinum accreditation.
Underpinning the standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. Investors in People enables organisations to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale. Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, told B2B: “We’d like to congratulate Bassadone Automotive Group. Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. The Group should be extremely proud of their achievement.”
Commenting on the award, Kevin Jones, Bassadone Automotive Group CEO, said: “Well done to everyone in our organisation who lives the vision and values of the company – without you we would not be the success we are today.
