BAM Nuttall retains Gold ‘Investor In People’ standard and scoops new Health and Wellbeing award

Camberley, 4 June 2019 - BAM Nuttall is proud to retain the Gold ‘Investors in People’ Standard, and receive the new Health and Wellbeing award, signalling our commitment and action for supporting our people to achieve their potential.

BAM Nuttall has held an Investors in People, the international standard for people management, for 20 years, benchmarking how we lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results.

Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. Working with organisations globally, Investors in People can assess performance compared with the best.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: ‘We’d like to congratulate BAM Nuttall, Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, and an organisation committed to achieving success by realising the potential of their people. Everyone at BAM Nuttall can be extremely proud of their achievement.’

Commenting on the award, CEO Steve Fox, said: ‘Retaining our IIP Gold standard for another three years is something to which everyone at BAM Nuttall has contributed – it’s a signal for future employees, and our customers, of our commitment to supporting people, and learning from others to improve further. We pride ourselves on giving our people ongoing opportunities to build their skills and stretch their experiences – so they’re happy to stay, and can focus their efforts on achieving success here – for themselves, their teams, our customers and our business. The new IIP Health and Wellbeing Award is also recognition of our efforts to make sure support and learning goes beyond developing technical and business skills. People have a life beyond their job and career, with individual needs and demands that can’t be left at the door.’

‘A laser focus on Safety; occupational health assessments; team briefings and courses to increase knowledge about physical health and mental wellbeing, along with opportunities to get involved in volunteering and fundraising; to connect and collaborate – are also an important part of our people’s lives. And at BAM Nuttall, this is what we give to our people, everywhere.’

Quotes from employees to IIP assessors included:

  • ‘We’re given every opportunity to progress and develop. There has been a huge shift in Health and Safety and a big drive on welfare and wellbeing. It is driven the whole way down through the organisation – it is not all about profit but about looking after the people.’
  • ‘Operating safely is everything here, and the message is reinforced through Your Safety is My Safety.’
  • ‘We’re encouraged to identify new ways of working, for example, to reduce the need for using handheld tools.’
