“The human mind is our fundamental resource.” – It was with these words that John F. Kennedy addressed the Congress of the United States with a Special Message on February 20, 1961. Since then, more than half a century has come and gone, but the idea it conveys is more relevant today than ever. Companies might trade in corn and grain, in oil and gas, in goods and services; but at the end of the day, it is the people who make or break a business. As a consultancy and software business, this holds even more true for us here at KELTON.
It is thanks to our people that since our beginnings in 1991 we have grown to become leaders in our industry, and it is people who will continue to drive the innovations and future successes of KELTON. We have long recognised that in order to attract - and retain - the best talent, it is absolutely crucial to look after and invest in our people, and to provide them with a working environment in which they can thrive.
We are therefore very proud to announce that KELTON have recently received commendations from Investors in People (IIP) on achieving the IIP Silver Accreditation. Globally recognized and underpinned by a rigorous assessment, successful accreditation against the Investors in People Standard is the sign of a great employer, an outstanding place to work and a clear commitment to sustainability.
The Silver Accreditation awarded to KELTON substantiates our mentality of forward thinking and the expansive approach we take to cascading best practice through every level of the organisation. It demonstrates what we consider indispensable: a progressive approach to business improvement through people.
