FortisTCI has been reaccredited with Silver certification for the Investors in People (IIP) Framework, an internationally-recognized standard for excellence in people management.
Silver status is achieved by only 15% of organizations assessed, and the company has received two consecutive rankings. This accreditation level means that the company utilizes people-centered principles, which have been applied consistently across the business, and employees experience the benefits.
The IIP organization conducted the assessment from February 14 to March 14, 2022. This process comprised an all-employee online survey and individual interviews with a group of randomly selected employees. FortisTCI was also required to submit a portfolio of evidence on the company's performance against pre-defined themes.
The themes examine the way companies lead and inspire teams; live the organization's values and behaviors; empower and involve employees; manage performance; recognize and reward high performance; structure work; build capacity; deliver continuous improvement and create sustainable success. This year, FortisTCI recorded an even stronger performance, over the 2018 assessment.
FortisTCI is the only organization in the Turks and Caicos Islands with an IIP accreditation and has been ranked as Silver since 2018. The assessment occurs once every three years.
President and CEO of FortisTCI, Ruth Forbes, stated: "The Investors in People Framework has been an invaluable tool in leading, engaging, and developing our employees. The success of our organization starts and ends with people, and we will continue to deploy creative strategies and proven practices to attract, nurture and retain the best talent. Our Silver accreditation reflects our continued commitment to high performance and an exceptional employee experience, and how our employees feel about these approaches. Congratulations to our entire team on this significant milestone. We will continue to deliver our best efforts to make work even better."
CEO of Investors in People, Paul Devoy, stated: "We'd like to congratulate FortisTCI. Silver accreditation on We invest in people is a remarkable effort for any organization, and places FortisTCI in fine company with a host of organizations that understand the value of people."
