We invest in people – Platinum Accreditation

Thursday, 29 April 2021

SB Joinery, a leading manufacturer of bespoke high-end joinery products, is delighted to announce that they have achieved Investors in People, We invest in people – Platinum accreditation.

Platinum is the highest level of accreditation possible to achieve on the ‘We invest in people’ accreditation and is something only 2% of organisations achieve. In Hampshire, SB Joinery are now one of 5 Platinum organisations and one of just 2 who are Platinum reaccredited. This is a phenomenal achievement, given the current global disruption. It means policies and practices around supporting people are embedded in every corner of SB Joinery. In a platinum company, everyone – from the CEO to our apprentices – knows they have a part to play in the company doing well, and is always looking for ways to improve.

The company has grown significantly since 2017 and maintaining their unique and highly valued culture is pivotal to their strategic plan. They have shown impressive levels of improvement in both operational and people areas and have made significant investment in bringing in new skills to the workforce for both now and the future. There were many indications that SB Joinery’s goal to become an Employer of Choice is being achieved.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate SB Joinery. Platinum accreditation on We invest in people is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places SB Joinery in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”

Commenting on the award, Simone Begg – Head of People and Culture said: “Myself and the Senior Leadership Team are delighted with our accreditation. Having joined the business in a new role in 2020, it was evident how hard SB Joinery have already worked to make sure that people and values are at the heart of our decisions. Our team here is pretty unique. People genuinely care about each other, the community and about the work that we do. There is a real feeling that we are all working towards the same goal.”

SB Joinery are always on the look out for established and aspiring Joinery candidates.
