MacIntyre has been an Investor in People organisation since April 2001, achieving Silver status in December 2011 and in 2012 Gold status. MacIntyre was then invited to become an Investors in People Champion organisation, an accolade offered to just 5% of IIP organisations.
MacIntyre continues to use the Investors in People framework to assist in the effective delivery of its strategy, which in turn will support MacIntyre’s vision ‘for people with a learning disability to live a life that makes sense to them’.
To achieve accreditation, organisations are assessed against themes and indicators that lead to an award level of accredited, silver, gold or platinum that represents the level of performance an organisation has achieved. Assessment is carried out using online assessment, interviews, meetings and observation.
MacIntyre was found to be ‘Advanced’ in 8 of the 9 indicators and ‘High Performing’ in the area of “Living the organisation’s values and behaviours” about which the report noted that “MacIntyre’s values continue to be at the heart of everything they do and shape the way it operates at every level.”
