Investors In People
mosaic has been an Investor in People since 2001 with reviews every three years. Having Investor in People status has been an important step for us enabling us to look at our Business Plan, staff support and training. It gives us a way of measuring mosaic against other organisations. We do not kid ourselves that being an Investor in People means ‘we have got everything right’ but it is a step forward, that is continually monitored.
We were reassessed for our Investors in People award on 12 June 2014 and sailed through with flying colours. There were such a lot of changes since our last assessment – new working environment, loss of a major service, redeployment of staff, new services, the development of a Business Plan and the need to develop a lot of new services. it was a thorough inspection which ended successfully – the assessor saw a huge improvement over the last assessment three years ago. Staff are really proud about this and feel their hard work in difficult circumstances has paid off.
Quotes from the assessors:
“This review demonstrates the hard work undertaken by mosaic: shaping disability services to ensure that the standards achieved for people development are maintained. As a recognised organisation for over 13 years the Assessor was particularly keen to consider how feedback from previous reviews has been used. The overwhelming sense of the review, however, has been the positive impact of changes and the committment to continuous improvement….People and their development remains a priotiry for mosaic: shaping disability services. It is clear that the recent restructure was delivered to maximse people’s strengths and support new developments in the organisation”
“There has been continued emphasis by mosaic on supporting and developing people in order to learn and develop in both current and future job roles”
