'I believe strongly that Investors in People is a key means to improved organisational performance, and that the standard is as relevant to public sector bodies with substantial human resource development potential as it is to private sector companies,' he said. 'The council's success shows this quite clearly.

'IIP is a national standard, aimed at encouraging employers to invest in their greatest and most valuable resource - their workforce.

'It has been developed for employers by employers and represents best practice which is applicable to all organisations within both private and public sectors.

'Organisations which commit themselves to becoming Investors in People make a commitment from the very top of management to develop all employees within the organisation through staff training to achieve their organisation's objectives.

'In gaining this award, Skye and Lochalsh DC sets a standard for other local authorities. In a local authority context everyone benefits from IIP - individual staff, the organisation and local people.

'IIP acknowledges that improved service relies on training and developing the people who deliver the service and as such I commend it to other local authorities in Scotland.'
