B. Braun strikes gold with Investors in People award

Lisa Burns, Head of Human Resources with the Gold Award

Leading healthcare company B. Braun Medical Ltd is celebrating a hat-trick of gold awards after being recognised with Investors in People (IiP) Gold accreditation for the third consecutive time.

It places the South Yorkshire-based company in just two per cent of all IiP-certified organisations nationally to achieve the award and demonstrates the company’s exceptional levels of people management practices, innovative approaches and support for people to be at their best in contributing to and delivering the organisation’s ambition.

B. Braun Medical Ltd has been accredited by IiP since 2001. It was first awarded IiP Gold in 2012 and retained the accreditation in 2015.

The latest accolade follows a rigorous assessment including an online survey and interviews with a wide range of B. Braun employees. The results place B. Braun Medical Ltd above the IiP average and significantly above the industry average.

To celebrate and reward employees’ efforts, all staff have been presented with a ‘golden ticket’ which entitles them to an extra day of annual leave.

Based in Chapeltown, Sheffield, B. Braun Medical Ltd is a member of the B. Braun Group, one of the world’s leading healthcare companies.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management. The coveted IiP accreditation is awarded to motivated and forward-thinking organisations that are committed to engaging employees. It enables organisations to benchmark against the very best in business on an international scale.

Group Chairman and Chief Executive at B. Braun in the UK, Hans Hux, said: “To retain the Gold award for the third time is a fantastic achievement, particularly as the 2018 assessment was underpinned by a new 6th generation framework which contains tougher criteria than previous assessments.

“Our assessor participated in various company events from sales conferences through to team meetings and executive meetings, as well as a staff survey, of which we had a record-breaking response rate of 80 per cent.

“Following this rigorous process, our assessor was very impressed with the passion and enthusiasm shown towards our organisation, its goals and activities, and this latest IiP success is testament to the dedication and outstanding commitment of every single employee.

“While, like every organisation, we can still improve in some areas, it is our team’s strengths, ambitions and ideas that are the engine of success and we will continue to invest, nurture and support our workforce.

“B. Braun staff are the foundation of the business and so we are incredibly committed to ensuring all areas of B. Braun are valued, engaged and developed. I’m absolutely thrilled that #wearegold!”
