Awards & Accreditation

We are delighted that our work has been recognised in recent years:

IIP International Awards

June 2015
Finalist
MacIntyre was shortlisted in the 2015 International Investors in People Awards for ‘Gold Champion of the Year’.  This elite category recognised high-performing and high-achieving organisations that put people at the heart of their future success.  As a finalist we had to demonstrate how we developed and empowered our staff in order to bring improvements at every level, in every team, every day.  There were over 400 nominations from across the world and from a wide range of sectors, so this was a fantastic achievement for us to be recognised as a finalist in this category.  Congratulations to all MacIntyre staff on this achievement and also to our internal Investors in People Review Team who have led the way on our IIP journey.
