Gold IIP award for Stobo Castle

BORDERS health spa Stobo Castle has received the Investors in People (IIP) Gold Award.

Morag Roper, accounts director at Stobo Castle, received the award from First Minister Alex Salmond, right, at the Scottish Parliament.

Stobo Castle now joins the five per cent of accredited Scottish companies who have achieved this standard by excelling in how it manages and treats its workforce. It is the only establishment in the hospitality business in Scotland and the only privately-owned business in the Borders to receive a Gold Award.

“The management and staff have worked extremely hard to gain this recognition and I greatly value their on-going dedication. Such is our enthusiasm to continue to improve how we manage and develop our people, I would now urge Investors In People to introduce a Platinum Award,” commented Stobo Castle managing director Stephen Winyard.

IIP is a global business improvement framework and is recognised as an achievement of world-class best practice.
