We have recently completed our Investors in People Silver Assessment which was held over a 2 day period and are pleased to report we made the grade!

This was our third IiP review and for those of you who are not familiar with the process, it’s a fairly intensive couple of days with all members of staff involved with an external Assessor, who in this instance, was idg of North England.  The Assessor looked at all aspects of our business, sat in at our monthly Office Meeting and also undertook one to one interviews with all staff.

We have just received the Assessment Report and would like to share this from the Executive Summary:-

“This was a particularly impressive Investors in People review where all people working for TADW Architects feel that it’s a great place to work.  Recent initiatives including a health and wellbeing policy and evaluating management and leadership capabilities have further developed the organisation.  It is recommended that the organisation looks towards having a Gold top up to give recognition to additional areas that are being met”.

Investors in People Specialist
As a business, we have certainly benefitted from IiP over the last 8 years.  It has given us an opportunity to stand back and look at the way we work and also look at improvement opportunities for the future with an outside expert.

We are delighted that we have achieved silver standard and look forward to a top up assessment in the near future.

TADW at the Manchester 10k run

We are proud to announce that four of our finest athletes have recently completed the Manchester 10k run in support of The Wellspring, seen here doing the obligatory Bolt.

They battled through the pain barrier to complete the course in very respectable times, the top two separated by just 5 seconds!

Paul, Kevin, Jonathan and George would like to thank all those that sponsored them on the run for their generous support.  We raised a total of £432 for The Wellspring.
