Avenir retains Investors in People standard


Airtime distributor wins award again for its high levels of training and development of staff

Avenir Telecom has retained the Investors in People (IiP) standard, which it originally achieved in 2005.

IiP is the national award that sets a level of good practice for training and development of staff to achieve the goals of the organisation.

Avenir said that as well as developing employees alongside the organisation’s objectives, it also supports its dealers to grow their own businesses by offering them tailored recruitment packages to find new or additional staff, advertise posts more effectively, find suitable candidates quickly and to run recruitment and assessment events which they might not have the time, experience or skills to do themselves.

Each month one of Avenir’s teams selects a charity and the rest of the buisness supports them to raise money. Last year the company raised finds for charities including the Japanese Tsunami relief fund, cancer, leukaemia and heart charities, Help for Heroes, the Red Cross and local children’s hospice Noah’s Ark.

Avenir Telecom managing director Andy Tow said: “The IiP Standard is a great reflection of our way of working at Avenir Telecom, and proves that not only are our products and services great, our people and the dealer networks we have developed are performing at the very best levels too.

“I am immensely proud of the team and am grateful, on behalf of our customers too, for the professionalism and results they bring to the organisation. IiP provides a solid foundation for celebrating where we’ve got to and ensuring our organisational growth into the future.”
