Teesside University has won an Investors in People Gold award for the fourth consecutive occasion.

IiP status is recognised globally as a mark of excellence through people management and this year’s evaluation involved an all-staff survey of its 2,286 employees, and separate interviews with colleagues from all five of its academic schools and 14 central service departments.

The HR department has also been shortlisted in the Best People Team category in the upcoming national Investors in People Awards 2021 after the IiP assessors said the HR team has played an important role in supporting the University’s strategy by implementing a range of successful people engagement practices.

These have included a colleague-led development of a Values and Behaviours Framework to aid performance and improve the employee experience.

Other HR initiatives have involved regular colleague Pulse Surveys to inform and enhance its people policies, and ongoing work to develop an inclusive Team Teesside culture across the University.

Juliet Amos, Executive Director (Human Resources), said: "We are delighted to achieve the Investors in People Gold award once again, as it recognises the hard work and commitment of all our colleagues in helping to make Teesside University a great place to work and study.

"It also reflects our ambition to support and develop our people to be successful in the workplace, helping the University in turn to achieve sustainable success.

"I am particularly proud of my HR colleagues. It is deserved recognition for their outstanding efforts."
