Revive has been awarded the Investors in People (IIP) accreditation which focuses on how organisations lead, support, manage and develop their people.
The vehicle paint repair specialist, which has its headquarters in Rugby, spent the past 18 months putting systems and procedures in place to meet the rigorous IIP criteria.
Terry Mullen, operations director at Revive, said: “It’s a cliché I know but a business is only as good as the people working within it, and our people are our greatest asset.
“We have always invested in our people but when a business grows as quickly as ours has done it’s important to put in a framework that ensures each individual gets the support and training he or she needs to reach their full potential.
“In the early days when we only had a few employees, it was easy to see how they were doing and chat through any issues as they arose. But as numbers grew and we opened a second office those informal ad hoc ways had to change.”
To achieve IIP accreditation Revive had to put together a portfolio which was assessed by an outside accreditation body.
Mullen continued: “Working towards the IIP accreditation helped us look at the way we do things and develop a structured system for staff development, management and motivation.
“We embraced the whole experience and can already see the benefits.
“People have always enjoyed working here but the feedback we are getting tells us that the new systems we have established have helped to make Revive an even better company to work for.”
New initiatives include an employee of the month award where nominations are invited from colleagues to name the Revive member of staff who deserves the accolade, with the winner receiving shopping vouchers.
Revive has campaigned for higher standards within the vehicle paint repair industry and was part of the working party that developed a new Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) accreditation for cosmetic vehicle repairs.
It has its own IMI approved training centre in Rugby where its head office is also based nearby on Bilton Road.
