NVT Group’s commitment to young people goes GOLD

NVT Group has achieved the Investors In Young People (IIYP) Gold standard.

IIYP is a multi level framework with 10 indicators, with outcomes of good practice grouped into themes showing outcomes as Developed, Established and Advanced.

IIYP is a framework that supports organisations looking to recruit, retain and develop Young People, and offer recognition for those that are already doing this. It focuses on three key elements of Youth Employment – Attraction and Recruitment, Support and Development and Retention.

Many employers recognise the need to tackle issues such as an ageing workforce, skills gaps and shortages, talent development, succession planning and customer insight. Employing and developing young talent can be the solution. IIYP supports organisations from across the private, public and third sectors to assist them in meeting their business objectives by engaging and developing a talent pipeline for the future.

Accreditation can be gained at Standard, Silver or Gold levels measured against Developed, Established and Advanced levels.  We made our pledge to achieve the standard in 2015, when we were visited by MSP Angela Constance.  NVT Group’s Gold accreditation proves that the company’s commitment to investing in Young People is at an Advanced level.

NVT Group is a long time believer in the benefits of Investing In People.  We first met the IIP standard in 1998 and our accreditation was first elevated to the Gold standard in 2010.

Since achieving the IIP and IIYP Gold standards, we have made a pledge to achieve IIP’s Health & Wellbeing award standard, which helps businesses to improve their performance by fostering a happy, healthy workforce.
