The Department of Employment Relations and the Ministry of Education, Training, Employment, Youth, Sports and Culture are pleased to announce that another of the pilot organisations on the Investors in People Programme has attained the prestigious Investors in People Standard. CUC (Caribbean Utilities Company) Ltd was recently recognised as an Investor in People following an assessment in December 2005 by an assessor from the UK. They are the fourth organisation to gain this prestigious award since the pilot programme was launched in September 2003 and join the elite ranks within the Cayman Islands of KPMG, Bank Austria Cayman Islands Ltd. and the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. The Investors in People Standard is a business improvement tool designed to advance an organisation's performance through the development of its people. Achieving the Standard is considered to be particularly valuable in the Cayman Islands because it brings measurable, demonstrable benefits to the recognised organisation while contributing to the overall development of the Cayman Islands most valuable resource, its people. A formal presentation to CUC will be made by the Hon. Alden McLaughlin, Minister for Education, Training, Employment, Youth, Sports and Culture. Delighted with CUC's success the Minister said, "The Investors in People programme provides the ideal framework for organisations to develop their human resources. This should be a priority for employers across the islands and I hope CUC's achievement inspires others to do similarly".
