#Ports&Shipping - The UK’s largest energy port, the Port of Milford Haven in south Wales, has been awarded accreditation against the Investors in People Standard, demonstrating its commitment to high performance through good people management.

The Port (this year celebrates its 60th year), employs 181 staff at all levels within the diverse range of industries it serves. As well as being well known for its role in the global oil and gas industry, the Port has a Four Gold Anchor marina, is home to the largest fishing port in Wales and is involved in the ferry (see related coverage), cruise, general cargo, renewables and tourism sectors.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. Investors in People enables organisations to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate the Port of Milford Haven; Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. The Port should be extremely proud of their achievement.”

Commenting on the award Vidette Swales, HR Director at the Port of Milford Haven, said “We dedicate a great deal of time and effort to ensuring we provide a safe yet dynamic environment to work in. Employees are encouraged to embrace our core values of safety, collaboration and excellence in everything that they do and many take this to another level by regularly going the extra mile and getting involved in various committees and events. We are pleased to have retained IIP accreditation since 2004 – made possible by the passion and commitment shown by staff on a daily basis.”
