The famous quote, "Invest in people who invest in you" has been one of the core mantras behind the TaskUs brand for 10 years.
From our state of the art workspaces to top-notch benefits like professional development stipends, paid gym memberships (or even onsite gyms in some locations), and leadership training are some of the many ways that we invest in our employee's continuous growth and well-being.
Investors in People (IIP) is a company with a 20-year reputation in setting the standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support, and manage people for sustainable results. IIP offers multiple levels of certifications that involves rigorous assessment methodologies and a framework that reflects the latest workplace trends, essential skills, and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. In 2017, TaskUs earned the IIP Silver certification which is the second highest accreditation they offer and a great achievement that we were extremely proud of. However, one of our most cherished company core values is 'Always Strive for Excellence' which means that we are not satisfied with being great--we want to be the best at everything we do for our clients and employees.
This year we couldn't more proud to announce that we received the highest accreditation, IIP Platinum certification!
Why is IIP Platinum Certification a Big Deal?
The Platinum certification can only be achieved by companies that are assessed to be high performing in at least 7 out of 9 indicators and advanced (the second highest level) in the rest. The 9 indicators of the IIP standard are the following:
- Leading and Inspiring People
- Living the Organization's Values and Behaviors
- Empowering and Involving People
- Performance Management
- Recognizing and Rewarding High Performance
- Structuring Work
- Building Capability
- Delivering Continuous Improvement
- Creating Sustainable Success
In a survey, TaskUs earned the highest score out of the 5,000+ organizations that were assessed using the latest IIP standard, making TaskUs the largest Platinum organization in the world with over 10,000 employees. We are also the largest and only IIP-accredited BPO company in the Philippines and the first organization to receive the Health and Wellbeing award in the country.
What Does This Mean For Our Employees and Clients?
IIP Platinum certification is a sign of a great employer who has a clear and demonstrated commitment to creating a high-performance culture. TaskUs' mission from the beginning was that we put our people first, and earning this standard symbolizes our success as an organization and a leader in our industry as a whole.
Janet Webster, Chairman of Investors in People, said: "TaskUs has grown amazingly fast, and is incredibly successful. The more they grow the more they engage people and the more innovative they become. There are so many great practices it's hard to single out one. A continuous drive from the top to embed a people first values-driven company sums it up. They inspire people to be the best version of themselves, and that is a fantastic thing to do."
