The EBP celebrates Silver Investors in People accreditation

Staff at Lincoln-based social enterprise, The EBP are celebrating after the organisation received a much-coveted Silver Investors in People accreditation.

The Investors in People accreditation is held by thousands of organisations across the world and defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results. This is the first time in The EBP’s 17 year history that a silver accreditation has been achieved, recognising a highly empowered workforce, supportive management and an embedded commitment to develop individuals.

The EBP employs more than 50 people from its Lincoln headquarters and regional offices in Melton Mowbray and Northampton. Members of staff completed an in-depth survey and said that they felt proud to work for The EBP and believe it’s a great place to work. They find their work interesting and are encouraged to bring forward ideas and suggestions for improvement.

The EBP works in partnership with schools and businesses to help young people fulfil their potential through mentoring, enterprise challenges, skills development initiatives and work experience. Its services provide young people with opportunities to develop the skills that employers are looking for, supporting them on the next step of their journey, whether that is apprenticeships, further education or employment.

Elaine Lilley, Chief Executive at The EBP, said “I’m so delighted for all of our employees and directors as this is for everybody and recognises all of our efforts in making The EBP a great place to work.”

Andy Jeffcutt, Head of People Services at The EBP, said: “This is such great news for The EBP. We’re always looking for ways to improve and develop our staff and achieving the Silver Investors in People accreditation for the first time really demonstrates our commitment to our people.”
