Barnsley Council has picked up an international award from Investors In People (IIP) for their Excellence in Leadership and Management.
The council beat some tough worldwide competition by showing the judges that they’re truly investing in their people to create leaders at every level, inspiring and motivating people to achieve their potential and ensuring managers are leading by example.
Judges were impressed by examples of the council’s leadership programme making a real difference to the way the organisation is working. This follows the council’s achievement of Gold Investors In People standard last year.
Council Chief Executive, Diana Terris said,.”I am extremely proud of this award, it is an amazing achievement which shows the real quality of our people. A big thank you to all our employees for all they have achieved.”
