Jungheinrich UK achieves Investors in People accreditation

Published:  14 May, 2015

For the third time running, Jungheinrich UK has achieved accreditation to the Investors in People standard – a management framework for driving high performance through people.

Investors in People is a national standard that defines best practice for all aspects of developing a company’s employees. Jungheinrich UK first achieved the standard in 2009. To retain accreditation organisations require assessment every three years.

Jan Lorenz, managing director of Jungheinrich UK, said: “As a UK organisation serving the needs of UK plc’s demanding supply chains, we are delighted that Jungheinrich UK has again achieved these exacting standards for the management of our highly valued employees.

“Jungheinrich’s dedicated workforce is at the heart of the company’s ongoing success, and we are proud that we can demonstrate to our customers, partners and stakeholders that Jungheinrich UK offers the highest performance through our employees. This is a very significant achievement for the whole of the Jungheinrich UK team.”

Lucile Langrish-Smith, Jungheinrich UK’s director of finance and administration, added: “Through using the best practice principles set out by Investors in People we have created regular opportunities for staff to discuss their development with their line managers and have identified areas for training against required competencies for the job they are performing. The culture of the organisation is now one where we have confident, productive people.”
