Alison Babington (holding certificate) and other Improve International team members celebrate the CPD provider retaining its Investors in People status.

The company was one of the first in the veterinary sector to embrace IiP and has retained the bronze standard for a second time after a reassessment in January involving in-depth interviews with the company’s management team and employees.

Advanced investor

In achieving the bronze standard, Improve International is judged to be an “advanced” IiP.  This award is only achieved by around 5% of IiP recognised organisations in the UK, all of which have demonstrated additional evidence above the IiP core standard.

Improve International has an 18-year track record in providing structured CPD to veterinary professionals and offers a range of postgraduate certificate programmes, which are accredited by the European School of Postgraduate Veterinary Studies and validated by Harper Adams University.

‘Magnificent achievement’

Jeff Pullen, the IiP specialist who carried out the reassessment, said:  “Improve International has successfully retained its IiP bronze award – a magnificent achievement considering the significant changes that have taken place within the company over the past year.

“What this clearly demonstrates is organisations that invest in their people – developing them and communicating with them  – are agile, flexible and able not only to survive change, but to positively thrive on it.”

Alison Babington, business coordinator at Improve International, said: “We were delighted to retain our bronze award.  It is rewarding to be externally assessed and to be reassured our investment in staff is impacting positively on the company.”
