SGS in the Philippines Struck Gold!
After four years of pursuing excellence in our people management programs, we, at SGS in the Philippines, are the first to achieve the Certified Investors in People © Gold Award under the new Generation Six standard by the Investors in People (IiP).
As we’ve documented through SGS LAKBAY: Our IIP Journey to Gold, it all began in 2012 when we were conferred as an IiP Recognized Organization. This placed us as the benchmark throughout the SGS Group for being the only entity with such global accolade. In 2014, we achieved another milestone when IiP awarded us the Silver Accreditation. These commendations bore fruit in 2015 when our Global Employee Engagement Index was at 77% versus the 69% global norm. This steered us to continue on improving our programs and strategies and motivated us to aim for IiP Gold this year.
So we did. For more than six months, we engaged on an early assessment through IiP’s recently updated standard Generation Six. The process followed two phases: On-line Assessment and Employee Interviews. Under the leadership of Managing Director, Ariel Miranda, all SGS employees got involved and contributed by manifesting strengths in integrity, innovation, collaboration and interaction. Upon confirmation of the award, we not only reached Gold but have also attained the distinction to be the first IiP recognized brand with such achievement under Generation Six.
This development fuels us to stay true to our commitment in creating a great place to work in for its best assets – its employees.
Let us celebrate for our great team work as one organization. Cheers, SGS Philippines!
