Russell-Cooke is an Investor In People accredited firm

The Investors in People Standard is a business improvement tool designed to advance an organisation's performance through its people. Developed in 1990 by a partnership of leading businesses and national organisations, the Standard helps organisations to improve performance and realise objectives through the management and development of their people. Since it was developed, the Standard has been reviewed every three years to ensure that it remains relevant, accessible and attractive to all. The most recent review was completed in November 2010. Over 30,000 UK organisations are recognised as Investors in People, covering a wide spectrum of UK industries. Initially the Standard was administered through a section in the Department for Education and Employment (DfEE). As demand for, and interest in, the Standard grew the section became Investors in People UK.
