PTG secures IiP accreditation in Leeds and Wakefield

IT solutions and services firm PTG has secured Investors in People platinum standard for its Leeds and Wakefield offices – the highest-possible level of accreditation.

Following a three‐year assessment programme led by IIP – including staff satisfaction surveys, annual reviews and one‐to‐one interviews with team members – PTG has achieved the status for its sustained development and workforce investment.

PTG’s Group HR director Anne Davison said: “Being recognised with this prestigious accolade is a fantastic boost for our company, as it reinforces what our culture and values are all about – our people. They are our most important asset and we are committed to developing them at every given opportunity. This is what we believe is the key to high performance and job satisfaction.”

Forming part of the business’s people fulfilment and retention strategy, PTG offers a diverse wellbeing programme – comprising gym membership contributions, office fruit deliveries, mental health first aiders, regular one‐to‐ones and briefings, plus team‐building activities and social events.

Anne added: “We regularly conduct staff surveys, with the most recent one completed by IIP, as part of this accreditation process. For this, we achieved a 78% response rate, scoring 811 points out of a possible 900 – well above the average industry benchmark of 733 and the 724 for IIP‐status firms.

“This standard is the start of things to come for PTG, as we look to further invest in our staff’s learning development, as well as internal systems and hardware. We strive to make working here not only enjoyable but personally and professionally enriching.” There is also a Group profit share scheme offered to employees, based on financial performance per quarter.
