Students' Union receives IiP recognition again

The Students' Union has received confirmation that, following its annual review, it continues to meet the requirements of the Investors in People standard.

This year, the IiP Assessor focused on the trading services areas of the Students' Union and was pleased to see good practice throughout, and some clear examples of excellence.

"The Students' Union does not stand still, having embarked on two extremely relevant and developmental initiatives namely the Students' Union Evaluation Initiative and Investing in Volunteers", remarked the IiP Assessor, Richard Knight.

"This is to be commended and again reflects Bath Students' Union's desire to be at the leading edge of their sector."

Ian Robinson, the Union's General Manager, highlighted the many positive features which the Assessor had to say about the Union's trading services: "I am delighted that the Assessor recognised the hard work put in by our managers and staff in improving customer service and staff development practices.

"This assessment now means that the entire Students' Union has, over the past 12 months, been reviewed against the new IiP standards. The Assessor made a point of highlighting the initiatives we are taking to continuously develop and improve our services."

The Students' Union was the first area of the University to be IiP accredited, in 1999. It has opted to be assessed on an annual basis, and the next review, in March 2008, will focus on the Union's Membership Services operations.
