The charity off-shoot of Burton Albion has achieved Investors in People accreditation, which recognises organisations for the way they support and manage staff.
Founded in 1991, Investors in People has set the standard for better people management and is a recognised accreditation which is held by 14,000 organisations across the world.
The standard “defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results”.
Burton Albion Community Trust (BACT) engages with more than 8,000 people a week and delivers a diverse programme of health, education and sporting activities to all age groups.
BACT has achieved Investors in People status on its first application.
Assessor Kathyrn Shepherd, in awarding the accreditation, said: “It is a well-deserved accolade.
“Burton Albion Community Trust has worked with its growing team in an engaging and supportive manner and only recently benchmarked its practices against the Investors in People standard. The result of this assessment is then all the more noteworthy, as the ethos of Investors in People has been part of the trust’s culture from the outset.
“It was a pleasure to meet such a positive and committed group of people.”
