Grant Property Achieve Investors in Young People Gold Accreditation
Grant Property has achieved the prestigious Investors in Young People Gold accreditation, the only people management standard that focuses on an employer’s recruitment and retention of young people. This represents a true commitment to the training and development of young people and demonstrates Grant Property as an employer of choice for young people and testifies to their effective Youth Employment practices.
IIYP, Scotland’s only people management award focusing on employers’ recruitment and retention of young people, originated through a key recommendation from the Commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce, led by Sir Ian Wood. Offered to all businesses across Scotland, the award recognises and supports organisations in the employment of young people.
Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People Scotland, said “This is a fantastic achievement for Grant Property, and I and the whole IIYP team would like to wholeheartedly congratulate them. The Investors in Young People framework not only recognises and supports organisations in the employment of young people, but marks them out as an employer of choice. I am delighted to see that Grant Property has achieved the Gold level accreditation.
The benefits of recruiting and developing young people are countless. These include the creation of a talent pool for the future, new and increased skills in areas such as IT and social media, fresh eyes and mind-sets into business operations along with enthusiasm and unique talents.”
