I’m proud to see the efforts of our team recognised by Investors in People”.
Bonnie Clarke, Chief Executive of Remarkable, the organisation licensed to deliver Investors in People in Scotland said:
“It is with great pleasure that I can highlight the wonderful work that ELCAP has done in the last three years to gain the Platinum Level recognition of Investors in People.
I was lucky enough to spend time with Paul White and some of his team last year. I was personally moved by the compassion and genuine care that flowed throughout the team, coming from the top down across all areas of the organisation.
There is no doubt in my mind that the deep sense of community, kindness and commitment to the team and those they care for is an excellent example to us all about how to put people at the heart of a successful organisation.
I feel hopeful for the future of all businesses and organisatons in Scotland when I see such bright beacons of good practice that permeates out into the community and across the country. I am so delighted to have seen first-hand how people are treated and how genuine human caring can make such a positive impact. Congratulations to Paul and all the team for a wonderful achievement that deserves recognition and celebration.”
