We are an Investor in People

Since 1991 Investors in People has set the standard for better people management.  With a community across 75 countries worldwide, successful accreditation against the Investors in People Standard is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to sustainability. 

At the heart of Investors in People is a simple assessment framework which reflects the best practices in high performance working.  The Standard looks at best practice under three performance headings: leading, supporting and improving.

Buttle’s continues to meet the requirements of the Investors in People standard, which is subject to 3-yearly accreditation by outside consultants.
