We’re extremely proud to announce the renewal of our prestigious Investors in People (IIP) accreditation which was awarded following an in-depth assessment in June.

This is our first review since we originally achieved official IIP status in back in 2012.

During this time Air-IT has gone through a significant amount of growth and change. But we’ve always remained committed to our staff ensuring we provide an enjoyable and fulfilling working environment where they can develop and progress.

Todd McQuilkin, Managing Director at Air-IT says:

We’re delighted to be awarded Investors status once again, it’s a huge achievement and reflects all the hard work that goes into making Air-IT a great place to work.

We thoroughly embrace the IIP framework and ethos, and strongly believe that staff who enjoy their work and feel valued will succeed for themselves, their team, and our company and clients as a whole.

About Investors in People

Investors in People (IIP) is the UK’s leading accreditation for business improvement through people management. It provides a wealth of resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow with a focus on “high performance through people”.

Now in its 24th year, the standard is widely recognised for business excellence and signifies the mark of a quality employer.


Recommended for Silver

In order to renew our Investors status we underwent a formal assessment day where a cross-section of staff were interviewed to provide first-hand experiences of working at Air-IT.

We’re thrilled to report that staff feedback was extremely positive enabling us to pass with flying colours. So much so that we have been recommended to pursue the elite Silver status next time around – a standard which is held by less than 6% of accredited companies.

Our IIP Practitioner who carried out the assessment says:

It was an absolute pleasure to assess Air IT. They fully embrace all aspects of Investors in People and use the philosophy and Standard to create a culture where everyone wants to ‘give their all’ to provide the best service to their customers.

Everyone thinks it’s a great place to work and in my view – rightly so.

A successful year so far for Air-IT

So far, 2015 has been a very successful year for Air-IT – our client base has grown to over 400 and we’ve employed 6 new staff to support growth with further expansion and more jobs planned throughout the year.

In April, we were named amongst the world’s top 300 Managed Service Providers and ranked 33rd in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

We were also runners up in small business of the year at the Nottingham Post business awards in May.

It’s all about our people

We’re strong believers in our people and we’re committed to their continuous development and improvement so that we can continue to deliver our clients a truly world-class service.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said:

We’d like to congratulate Air-IT on their achievement. Attaining the Investors in People standard is something that any organisation should be truly proud of.

Working with Investors in People inspires and enables leaders, managers and employees at all levels to build their skills, improve their performance and achieve their potential.

We’d like to congratulate everyone at the Air-IT / MBC on retaining our IIP standard, and thank them all for their valuable contribution.
