Newcastle-based control instrumentation and electrical wiring specialists CMR Group has secured a second Investors in People Gold (IIP) for its ‘outstanding’ commitment to staff development and training.
The award, achieved by only a handful of UK organisations and reflecting best practice, sees CMR UK accredited against the sixth generation Investors in People standard.
The New York Industrial Park company initially gained IIP Gold in 2014 on the back of staff investment and new performance systems to improve quality and customer service levels.
Now, a second award reflects success in the company’s shift towards becoming a global partner to engine manufacturers and better management, development and support of employees.
It is expected that the commitment to use the IIP framework as a key part of its people development programme, will lead to CMR securing Platinum level at its next assessment.
Donna Warwick, HR supervisor, said: “This is another ringing endorsement of our commitment to developing a highly skilled and motivated workforce.
“We will continue to strive for outstanding performance levels, with clear ambition for the Newcastle factory to remain a high performing facility within an organisation with a global reach.”
IIP Gold offers a comprehensive framework that helps organisations to improve performance and realise objectives through the effective management and development of staff.
CMR UK is part of the global CMR Group, which supplies instrumentation, controls and power management for offshore platforms and vessels, marine, engine and industrial applications around the world.
With core product groups including automation, control panels, displays, sensors, wiring systems, power distribution, signal processing and supervision, CMR Group, headquartered in Marseille, France, is an engineering partner for many leading manufacturers, operators and integrators of capital equipment.
