Investors in People Accreditation

The Investors in People (IiP) accreditation is an internationally-recognised standard that defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to promote a culture of high performance.

The Go-Ahead Group and our bus and rail operating companies have been privileged to receive this accreditation. Our Head Office was recognised as ‘gold’ standard, and our train operating company, Southeastern, was singled out as an IiP ‘champion’.

Go-Ahead Group’s Head Office received the Gold Award in 2018, which recognises our continued commitment in our people. More than 75% of Go-Ahead’s Head Office colleagues took part in the assessment and 100% of those interviewed said that they would recommend Go-Ahead as an employer to friends. This signals that we are an organisation who will continue to invest, nurture and support our workforce.

Southeastern is one the few companies chosen as an IiP Champion. Out of more than 21,000 companies holding IiP status, fewer than 200 are champions. This accolade demonstrates Southeastern’s commitment to investing in its work force and its ample provision of training and development programmes for colleagues.

The IiP accreditation shows that we are committed to making Go-Ahead a place where colleagues will thrive and enjoy coming into work.
