The Priors Dental Practice is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Investors in People Gold Status after receiving praise for our progression and recognition of excellence in our employment practice.
The Priors is one of only three dental practices in the Midlands to achieve IIP Gold status, which is another accolade in a long line of award wins – most recently winning the award for best patient care in the Midlands at the National Dentistry awards.
Investors in People Specialist Kathyrn Shepherd carried out the independent IIP assessment. She commented; “The Priors has an inbuilt philosophy to excel and remain at the forefront of its profession. Its ethos is to provide patients with a friendly and supportive service and the aim is to make their visit to the Dentist the highlight of their day!”
She continued: “Many congratulations to everyone for their contribution towards this success. It is testament of the commitment that the whole team has shown to work to high standards. You all deserve to be very proud of your success.”
The Investors in People Gold standard can only be achieved where an organisation can demonstrate excellence in their HR strategies for managing, developing and supporting their staff and assessment involves a detailed and extensive review of employment practice and staff views.
Principal Dentist Dr Mark Emms said: “The gold standard represents world class best practice in achieving success through our people. We are extremely proud to be recognised for our commitment in investing in our people and our work. Every single member of the team has been dedicated to achieving IIP Gold and I’m very proud of our collective achievements.”
