A recent assessment by the Inspiring Business Performance and the Investors in People (IIP) team has resulted in Aquent, Inc. (the UK and European branch of the international marketing and creative talent placement agency) receiving certification as an IIP employer. A progressive change agent in the world of business, the IIP bases its vision and operations on the precept that companies transform through the performance of empowered employees. This, in turn, improves the benefit those companies enjoy and strengthens the business community as a whole.
To achieve IIP certification, Aquent management underwent an intensive regime consisting of several phases: application/interview, selection and construction of a development plan, required training, knowledge testing, and more. Aquent’s dedication to, and completion of, the entire assessment process further ensures the corporation’s commitment to carrying out the standards of the IIP.
“Being recognised as an Investors in People employer is something to shout from the rooftops,” shares Peter Geary (Managing Director: Aquent UK) when asked about the prestigious award. “This accreditation shows our clients and talent we are ambitious, forward-thinking, and people-centric. As purveyors of the UK’s leading people management standard, we look forward to continuing to provide new and existing clients with business development, through the performance of our exceptional marketing, creative, and digital talent.”
