We are pleased to annouce that O'Neill & Brennan have retained the Investors In People standard. Four of our regional offices participated in the audit process in January 2016.
Investors in People is the standard for people management. The standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results.
We create purpose in a fast changing environment whilst motivating through change. Outperforming organisations foster leadership skills at every level of the organisation to deliver outstanding results.
1.Leading and inspiring people
Our leaders make the organisation's objectives clear. They inspire and motivate people to deliver against these objectives and are trusted by people in the organisation.
2.Living the organisation's values
Our people and leaders act in line with the organisation’s values at all times. They have the courage and support to challenge inconsistent behaviours.
3.Empowering and involving people
There is a culture of trust and ownership in the O'Neill & Brennan where people feel empowered to make decisions and act on them.
For many, constant change is now normal. Successful organisations are moving towards flatter structures to enable faster decision-making, customer focus and agility. Reduced overheads, better service for customers and more successful organisations are the benefits of this approach.
Objectives within the organisation are fully aligned, performance is measured and feedback is used.
2.Recognising and rewarding high performance
Recognition and reward is clear and appropriate, creating a culture of appreciation where people are motivated to perform at their best.
The organisation is structured to deliver the organisation's ambition. Roles are designed to deliver organisational objectives and create interesting work for people, whilst encouraging collaborative ways of working.
Our organisation is always looking for opportunities to improve by seeking every marginal gain. We know that every small change adds together to enabling us to constantly outperform.
People’s capabilities are actively managed and developed. This allows people to realise their full potential and ensures that the organisation has the right people at the right time for the right roles.
2.Delivering continuous improvement
There is a focus on continuous improvement. People use internal and external sources to come up with new ideas and approaches, supported by a culture that encourages innovation.
3.Creating sustainable success
O'Neill & Brennan has a focus on the future and is responsive to change. Our leaders have a clear understanding of the external environment and the impact this has on the organisation.
We look forward to offering these benefits and improvements to our clients over the coming year.
