Vygon Acheives Bronze Award for Valuing People

Medical supplier Vygon UK Ltd is a great employer – and that’s official!    The Swindon-based company that employs more than 150 staff across the UK, has just been awarded the prestigious Investors In People accreditation – an international accolade.

IIP has accredited Vygon UK with a Bronze Award which recognises the company’s commitment to its staff, training, structure and management. 


As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of medical and surgical devices to the National Health Service and private hospitals, Vygon UK becomes one of the eight per cent of companies who succeed in being accredited by Investors in People after applying. 


Chris Harris, Human Resources Manager at Vygon UK, began working on the IIP application in 2014. Chris said: “Being accredited with the Investors in People award is an excellent achievement. It shows our existing staff, prospective employees, customers and the public, that we are a company committed to leading, managing, motivating, training, improving and outperforming in key business areas. 


“To achieve the Bronze Award we were assessed against an IIP framework that reflects the best practices in high performance working in three key areas - leading, supporting and improving. It is a very rigorous process and I’m delighted to say Vygon passed with flying colours!”


To achieve the award Vygon had to demonstrate evidence of how it shows leadership, support and improvement in its company structure, staff and business. 


It had to prove how work systems are in place that inspire and motivate staff; instil trust and ownership and offer recognition and reward alongside structured working. The way staff are managed and developed and offered continuous improvement was demonstrated as well as the company’s ability to sustain success, respond to change and focus on the future. 


Vygon MD Les Davies said: “Achieving the Investors in People accreditation is clear evidence that as an employer and a business Vygon is proud to be one of those leading the way. We have a UK team that is well-supported and trained, motivated and managed with targets and goals for staff as individuals and when working together as a business. Ensuring staff are valued and encouraged is vital for any successful business.”


Vygon holds the IIP Award until 2018 when it will be re-assessed for its Bronze level accreditation – or further examined if applying for the Silver.
