New identity for employment service
Investors in People renamed Re:markable
Investors in People Scotland is rebranding as Re:markable to reflect its broader services to employers.
The internationally recognised Investors in People accreditation (IIP) and Investors in Young People (IIYP) will remain the flagship services, complemented by the roll-out of new services later this year.
Peter Russian, chief executive of Remarkable, said: “Today marks a new era for Investors in People in Scotland.
“We’re building on the best of what we do, and responding to the increasing demands from organisations who are looking for specific help and support in addressing the changing challenges of today’s workplace.
“We’ve steadily diversified from one to seven services over the last decade and it’s important that our brand reflects our expanded portfolio with a contemporary identity.
“We remain committed to the Investors in People accreditation as an award of quality. We will continue to improve our services by working with Scottish, UK and international partners to share the latest thinking and research on leading practice.
“People are the key to making organisations remarkable and we believe they perform better when they develop and give more control to their employees.”
Economy Secretary Keith Brown said: “Re:markable. A very apt new name for an organisation which has delivered so much for employees, employers and the economy since it launched in 1991.
“There is only one thing we know for definite when it comes to work in the 21st century, and that is change – and often fast paced change – is inevitable. So it’s great to see this organisation evolve to be more flexible, and actually expand its offer, to meet the demands of a modern day economy and workforce in Scotland.”
Re:markable’s team of 35 specialists support organisations by delivering advice from IIP accreditation to key business issues including people management, improving performance, skills, leadership, employee engagement, developing young people and improving health and wellbeing in the workplace.
In Scotland there are more than 750 Investors in People (IIP) accredited organisations and nearly 400 with Investors in Young People (IIYP) accreditation.
