The award demonstrates the agency’s commitment to realising the potential of its people for high performance. The accreditation, which has to be renewed every three years, sets the benchmark for excellence in people management and recognises those performing to a high quality in their field.

Grass Roots HBi had held the Investors In People accreditation since 2003, but this is the first time the Meetings & Events division has attained the award.

Sue Massey, operational director of Grass Roots Meetings & Events, said: "People management is a vital concern for us, so to achieve the sixth generation standard as an entire division is something we are truly thrilled about.

"The accreditation is given to those who are considered great employers, provide a strong workplace and are committed to sustainability. It is something we have actively worked towards over the past year and will continue to improve upon in years to come. Our employees are part of a larger team dedicated to making Grass Roots a success and this accreditation is recognition of that philosophy."

Paul Devoy, head of Investors in People, said: "Meeting the sixth generation standard is something that Grass Roots Meetings & Events should be extremely proud of, it is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. I would like to thank every person at Grass Roots for their involvement in the pilot and their collaboration with Investors in People at this important time. Most of all I would like to congratulate them on their fantastic achievement."
