Doig+Smith celebrates fifth consecutive Platinum and Gold Investors in People awards
Construction consultancy Doig+Smith is delighted to announce the renewal of its Investors in People accreditations.
For the fifth consecutive year, the consultancy has been awarded with Investors in People Platinum and Investors in Young People Gold status. Both awards are a significant endorsement of Doig+Smith’s commitment to leading, managing, supporting and developing its people.
In the reports issued by Remarkable, the Scottish Government’s partnership with people management specialists, Doig+Smith was commended for its excellent training programme, which actually improved during the pandemic, thanks to the introduction of consistent lunchtime CPD events run on a weekly basis.
The solid leadership at Doig+Smith was also highlighted as a strength. “There is strong evidence that leaders are active role models, leading by example and trusted by people in the organisation.’ Further praise was issued for their clear communication of organisational objectives and the encouragement of the leaders in motivating staff to meet and exceed them.”
The paper focussing on Young People was equally positive with the author stating: “It is clear that Doig+Smith provides a knowledge sharing environment where young people are learning continuously and given the right experience and opportunities to grow. Knowledge sharing and learning are keystones of the organisational culture, and this commitment to young people comes from senior leaders.”
Gordon McLintock, Doig+Smith director, is delighted with the accreditation news.
He commented. “We are really pleased to have been granted Platinum and Gold Investors in People status yet again. These awards are highly prestigious and position Doig+Smith as an employer of choice. Our staff are the heartbeat of our organisation, and it is reassuring to have received such positive feedback both from them and the IIP assessors.”
