Investors in People work with organisations to find out what their performance targets or key priorities are. These then become central to how they work, supporting the business plan and developmental goals through the people working in the organisation.
Marley have held the Investors in People standard for a number of years. Independent advisors and assessors make an annual visit and conduct face to face interviews with people from across our organisation. The assessment results tell us how well we are performing, suggest key performance indicators or provide tailored business advice on where to best focus further ongoing development activity.
Links with schools and businesses
The company undertakes various initiatives with local schools in terms of visits, both to the workplace and into the school, as well as work experience placements. In addition, the company provides advice, guidance and support as requested by local schools on topics such as CV writing and interviewing skills.

Always keen to do our bit, our association with charitable organisations takes many forms, from supporting our employees in their own personal sponsored endeavours to donating goods to a local homeless charity or providing financial support to a national charity providing support to build water supply and sewerage systems for communities in Africa and Asia.
