We have been awarded the Investors in People Silver standard. This recognises our commitment to realising the potential of our people.
Established in 2010, and with more than 1,200 employees, we are at the heart of the UK’s growing social economy. We manage more than 40 event venues, leisure centres, attractions, cafés and bars in partnership with local authorities and leisure trusts across Bournemouth, Poole, Portsmouth, London and the Home Counties.
Our focus is to get more people more active, attract bigger entertainment audiences to a diverse range of cultural and artistic events, and to support the local economy by generating economic benefit from major conference, exhibitions and events.
In 2015, we hosted more than 400 shows, sold over half a million cultural, sporting and entertainment tickets, clocked up 2.2 million leisure centre visits and welcomed 93,000 conference and exhibition delegates. This generated £35 million and contributed an estimated £48.5 million to the local economy.
Investors in People is the UK’s leading accreditation for business improvement through people management, and provides a wealth of resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow, with a focus on good people making great business.
Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said:
“Achieving the Investors in People Silver standard is something that any organisation should be truly proud of. It is the sign of a company which is very committed to good people management practice and we’d like to congratulate BH Live on their achievement.”
To date, of the 14,154 Investors in People accredited organisations, only 13% have achieved the Silver standard and above.
In achieving the Silver standard we have demonstrated that our people are going above and beyond to ensure the organisation succeeds. Commenting on the award, Peter Gunn, Chief Executive for BH Live said:
“We are in a people industry and people are at the heart of everything we do. Our team’s commitment to giving customers a great experience is fundamental to sustained success and growth. This achievement recognises the value we place on our people and demonstrates our investment in their continuous improvement.”
