Investors in People
MENTER Cwm Gwendraeth has become the first Menter Iaith in Wales to win an Investors in People Award.
The good news comes just a month before the Gwendraeth Valley-based Welsh language venture celebrates its 20th birthday.
The Welsh Assembly Government’s Investors in People (IiP) standard is designed to help businesses improve their performance and results by making the most of their staff. It aims to improve staff management and development, and maximise employees' potential, enabling them to develop new skills.
Menter Cwm Gwendraeth Director Deris Williams said that working with Investors in People was proving to be a real catalyst for positive change in the way the company works.
She said: “We are developing a reputation as a ‘people company’ and every member of staff is given the opportunity to shape our future”.
“We are the first Menter Iaith in Wales to be awarded Investors in People and I’m particularly pleased that it has come as we prepare to celebrate our 20th birthday.”
