As a voluntary sector organisation, one of the most important investments we make is into our people.
By embracing the world recognised Investors in People Standard, we have made a commitment to strive towards the very best in people management excellence and how to make NICHS a great place to work. We are proud to have achieved We Invest in People Silver accreditation. This demonstrates that we have the leadership and culture that allows us to make a profound difference to how everyone feels about their work, their value, impact and purpose.
Living to a set of values that are consistent with philosophies of NICHS has been fundamentally important in supporting and inspiring our people. We have worked hard to produce a set of values which are unique and support our culture, and we have recently launched our new Values and Behaviours framework, which underpins everything we do.
Our values are Compassionate, Courageous, Considerate and Committed.
For many, this value-driven culture is a key element of what makes NICHS a special place to work. People demonstrate how they experience the values personally and strive to act as role models, applying them on a daily basis in their relationships both with service users and colleagues; treating people with dignity and respect; supporting people to be involved in their communities; taking responsibility for actions; and being honest, open and accountable. In short, achieving our charitable aims to the highest possible standard.
