Axis Well Technology
Investors in People
In May 2015, Axis Well Technology became the first oil and gas company, headquartered in Aberdeen, to be recognised for its commitment to its employees by achieving the Gold Investors in People (IIP) accreditation. This achievement came shortly after the firm received the Investors in Young People accreditation (IIYP) in March 2015.
Investors in People is a management framework which helps businesses reach their potential through their employees and optimise performance by equipping them with outcome driven tailor-made approaches. Organisations that demonstrate IIP standards achieve the accreditation through an honest and critical assessment to determine performance and success. Almost 1,500 organisations in Scotland are working with IIP which provides advisory services to help businesses enhance their performance.
Axis started on the IIP journey early in the company’s history when it achieved entry level IIP status in 2005 and then attained the Bronze accreditation in 2012. Using the IIP framework, the company continued to push ahead with several new initiatives with the aim of achieving Gold accreditation which the company achieved in 2015, two years after the investment by Elysian Capital.
This prestigious Gold award places the company in the top 7% of all IIP accredited businesses in the UK.
“Axis Well Technology has excelled with their application and accreditation - we were extremely impressed by their commitment to their workforce in the oil and gas sector. This is a fantastic achievement for them and I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the organisation.”Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People
“As a global oil and gas consultancy, people are our most important asset and our aim has always been to be an employer of choice within the industry. The IIP framework has been and continues to be a complementary business tool and correlates well with overall business performance, which has helped Axis deliver a great service to our loyal customers.”Jim Anderson, CEO of Axis Well Technology
