Manchester Central achieves coveted Investors in People Gold status

Manchester Central

Manchester Central proves itself an employer of choice by being awarded with Investors in People (IIP) Gold status.

Cementing its reputation as one of the best major venue employers in the UK, Manchester Central joins a select group of venues and conference centres to have gained the accolade.

The north of England's leading conference and events venue has achieved IIP Gold status after implementing a host of learning and development opportunities for its team throughout the last year.

Manchester Central was the first major venue in the UK to achieve IIP Bronze status and has advanced to Gold in just over two years.

Angie Robinson, Chief Executive of Manchester Central, said: “A venue's greatest asset is its team and it is essential that we continue to invest in ours. I'm delighted that Manchester Central is being recognised as one of the best employers in
the industry.

“We're passionate about attracting and retaining the most talented individuals and we will continue to develop a workplace where team members can learn, develop and progress.â€'

Some of the innovative employee-focused initiatives that have been built upon to contribute to Manchester Central's success include:

  • Introducing a number of learning and development initiatives accessed via a new online portal
  • Developing an accessible and convenient way for team members to share feedback
  • Encouraging strong people management and creating an environment where managers are approachable and willing to listen
