Starglaze has won a Gold Investors in People (IIP) Award. This puts us in the global top 23% of all IIP-assessed businesses. But also demonstrates our commitment to improving the skills within our business, and the service levels we give our customers.
We’re so incredibly proud of both the Company and the team behind it. We now rub shoulders with the likes of Wilmott Dixon, Sainsbury’s and the Wates Group.
“We are absolutely delighted to win this Gold award. It is a real reflection of the hard work and investment shown by our senior leadership. And also by each and every colleague who steps up to the plate and develops their role within the business,” says our Managing Director, Mike Parczuk.
“People are the most important thing in any business. Without them, we are just large factory with lots of nice machines and big lorries. Our focus over the last two years has been to make sure that we have structures and processes in place. So that every person – whether they’re on the shop floor, in the offices, out in the field – understand what is expected of them. And that has really paid off!”
Starglaze achieved Silver IIP status in October 2020. In itself this is a recognition of the determination we have to embed training and development into the heart of our business. To achieve Gold standard just two years later is highly unusual. It puts us in the top 23% of all 50,215 IIP-assessed businesses globally.
Sales Manager Collette Hyatt says that the key is setting personal professional development goals for everyone. We create an environment where the ultimate winner is the customer.
“At the core of everything we do are our Family Principles. A set of values that shape and underpin our actions, behaviours, and attitudes in helping us achieve our Company vision. It’s what helped us to win the Lincolnshire Business Awards Family Business of the Year Award for 2022, and now to achieve Gold Investors in People is just the cherry on the top.”
A training and development framework details what we expect from our employees, and what they should expect from the company. It is this two-way dialogue that allows interaction with suppliers and customers to shine according to Customer Service Manager Sam Cannon.
“The teams I manage all communicate directly to people from outside the business,” she said. “Our IIP Silver Award helped to win and retain quality colleagues. Which makes us better as a company and improves the service we offer our customers. Our Gold Award will only improve this further.”
