Recognition for CSG’s Investment in People

23 August 2010 by Daryl Tunningley

Staff at Cleansing Service Group’s (CSG) Lanstar waste treatment facility in Manchester are celebrating their third business accreditation success in an award-winning year.

The company has just gained the Investors in People (IIP) national quality standard after already achieving accreditation to the Environmental Standard ISO 14001 and Quality Management Standard ISO 9001 – all in the same year the facility scooped the Salford Business Award for Innovation for its pioneering work in sustainable waste management.

CSG’s long-established industrial waste treatment and processing centre at Cadishead, where 38 people are employed, is one of the most advanced facilities of its kind in the UK and has been developed to handle some of industry’s most hazardous by-products.

IIP is a scheme designed to boost business performance by improving staff management, employee satisfaction, motivation and access to training and development.

Neil Richards, managing director of CSG’s Treatment and Recovery Division, said: “We believe we have one of the best-trained workforces in the waste management industry. The modern industrial waste handling process is a complex and changing operation, and we ensure our staff’s training and professional development is kept up to date at all times.

“The recognition by Investors in People confirms the importance we place on teamwork, empowerment and developing skills, which in turn has driven our business growth.”
