August 2012: Following the announcement of the achievement of its Investors in People (IIP) Gold Status just last month, The Landmark London has now been awarded the highly-esteemed IIP Champion Status, an accolade that less than 25% of IIP Gold organisations can claim.
Investors in People Champions are a prestigious group of role model organisations who promote IIP by arranging a series of best practice-sharing activities through the ‘Champions Programme’. This programme is intended to disseminate good practice in people management, letting the Champions lead by example of how they improved their business performance using IIP. This is done in a variety of ways, including arranging and delivering four best practice activities a year through presentations, mentoring and hosting open days.
The Landmark London began their journey with Investors in People just three years ago with its achievement of Bronze; Silver followed in 2011 and in just eight months the hotel reached its Olympic year goal of IIP Gold. This accomplishment proves a testament to The Landmark London’s ongoing dedication to its team members, ensuring the highest standard of staff engagement, recognition and satisfaction as key to improving business performance. With the award of Champion Status, Investors in People have re-affirmed this by holding The Landmark London as an example of best practice to aspiring organisations, not just in the hospitality industry, but across all business sectors.
Nicola Forshaw, Director of Human Resources at The Landmark London, says:
‘We are thrilled with this achievement of Investors in People Champion Status which is truly the icing on the cake following our accomplishment of the Gold award. The Landmark London are fully committed to the ongoing engagement, recognition and reward of its team members, growing business performance through our people. We are delighted to be upheld by Investors in People as an example of best-practice and look forward to undertaking our role in the Champions Programme.’
