Robertson awarded IIYP Platinum accolade

Robertson has been awarded the highest Investors in Young People (IIYP) accolade, receiving Platinum accreditation in recognition of its commitment to being an employer of choice for young people (16-28 years). IIYP recognises employers that attract, recruit, develop and retain young people.

During an assessment period, IIYP explored the business’ strategies, culture, initiatives and working practices in addition to having in-depth discussions with 100 employees about their experiences. It is now one of only fifteen organisations to achieve IIYP Platinum status, and earlier this year retained its Investors in People Gold accreditation.

Elliot Robertson, Chief Executive Officer, Robertson Group, said: “This is an incredible achievement which shows that we are truly committed to ensuring each young person has the necessary development and opportunities to become high-performing individuals as part of Team Robertson.

“Our people will always be at the heart of everything we do. Young people are instrumental to our success and have been an integral part of our DNA since the business was founded, indeed one of the very first employees almost 60 years ago was an apprentice. Since then, we have been on a journey of continuous improvement for all employees and have introduced people strategies, including one specifically geared to the next generation. Its purpose is to provide meaningful personal career development and engagement opportunities that empower individuals to achieve their full potential and career aspirations.”
