Firm’s investment in staff recognised
STAFF at Sidey are celebrating after scooping a top award.
The Perth-based window and door manufacturer has received high-profile recognition for its commitment to its staff recruitment, training and development programmes, having been awarded the national Investors In People standard.
The company was presented with their certificate by the Provost of Perth and Kinross during a celebration at its manufacturing facility in Feus Road.
Michael Dobson, Sidey’s chairman, said: “We are extremely proud to receive this award, especially during what is an extremely difficult time for businesses.
“Achieving Investors in People recognises the work we have done in terms of training, development and investing in our staff, and provides an effective framework to bring about desired culture changes.
“The standard also provides an accurate audit of current strengths and weaknesses which will help us develop as a company and as individuals.”
Provost John Hulbert added: “I would firstly like to congratulate Sidey on their recent Investors in People Award. It certainly is an achievement to be proud of.
“We are all very aware of the current difficulties that local businesses are facing, which is why it is refreshing to hear that a company such as Sidey may be bucking the trend, showing profit and re-investing in its future.”
Investors in People is the national standard which sets out a level of good practice for training and development of people to achieve business goals.
