Alloga UK Achieves Investors in People Gold Accreditation for People Management

Alloga UK, one of the UK's leading pre-wholesale and contract logistics companies, has achieved the Investors in People gold standard.

The internationally-recognised accreditation sets a standard for people management within businesses, and what it takes to lead, support and manage people for sustained success. Achieving Investors in People standard is widely regarded as the sign of a great employer and a high-performing place to work. The standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and framework, with just two percent of around 14,000 Investors in People-accredited organisations expected to achieve the gold standard.

In order to secure the accreditation, an online assessment was sent to all 857 Alloga UK employees, and various company processes and documents, including the company strategy, performance measurement, training programs, operating procedures, job descriptions, training, and appraisal process, were reviewed.

Further evidence was then gathered and assessed via employee and candidate interviews carried out by an Investors in People assessor. The assessor explored processes and systems, and spoke to a representative selection of the staff at all levels in confidential one-to-one interviews.

The Investors in People assessment highlighted a number of areas where Alloga UK showed strength. As an organisation overall, employees felt empowered and trusted by their managers to drive improvement in the business, and become the best they can possibly be.

In addition, the assessor could see Alloga UK was well-positioned for the future, with a clear working company strategy in place, and progression plans to develop the company's future managers. Finally, a vast number of continuous improvement techniques were helping to drive progression across all areas in the business, and create an atmosphere where employees were empowered to take initiative themselves and drive Alloga UK forward.

The Investors in People Assessor said: "It's been an absolute pleasure to work with Alloga UK and it is clear that people enjoy working here. Everyone has been welcoming, friendly and open. This openness made my job both straightforward and a pleasure. I congratulate Alloga UK on their well-deserved gold accreditation."

Carla Marshall, HR Manager, Alloga UK said: "This is an amazing achievement and one that every single person at Alloga UK should be very proud of. Achieving the Investor in People gold standard demonstrates that Alloga UK is a great place to work, and this can only be achieved by having great people."
