LIPA has become the first performing arts organisation in the UK to receive Investors in People (IiP) Silver accreditation.
Assessors presented the award, which is held by only 1 percent of the 24,000 organisations in the UK recognised by IiP, after looking at how effectively LIPA operates and how it develops and manages its employees.
LIPA was judged on areas such as staff development, leadership, management and strategy, and performance measurement.
The institute was first recognised by IiP in 2004, when it was awarded the Investors in People 'Standard', the core benchmark of good practice in business improvement through people. This orginal seal of approval is now complemented by Bronze, Silver and Gold recognition, which are designed to celebrate the success of organisations that perform beyond the Standard.
