Vista continue to demonstrate commitment to their people with a Silver award from Investors in People

Silver award from Investors in People
Award-winning creative communications consultancy and event specialists, Vista, have been accredited with a silver award from Investors in People. The full service agency which currently employs 92 people across their London and Leeds sites were praised by assessors for their ‘genuine enthusiasm for continuous improvement’ as an organisation.

Following a rebrand in 2015, the agency has continued to deliver against a robust and ambitious business plan. The silver award demonstrates the agency has the signs of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a commitment to sustained success.  The agency was commended for their ongoing learning and development investment for their people, which ranges across internal and external initiatives as well as self-driven activity, whilst maintaining a clear link to the agencies business objectives.

James Wilkins, Managing Director of Vista commented; “The results tell us that our people practices are working: employee engagement scores have gone through the roof, retention has increased to way above the industry standard, we have had more internal promotions, we have gained more new clients, our 'pitch to win' has increased. On average 1 in 3 is what you would expect to win and yet we have achieved 70+% success rate. We have better consistency in performance of our people, the sum of the parts is better and we are now able to diversify.”  

Steve Burrows, Managing Director of Investors in People North of England added; “This is a fantastic achievement for We are Vista Ltd and I would like to congratulate all of the team. We believe that your people make the difference and by investing in them you are looking to create sustainable success. IIP is designed to help organisations and their people to realise potential, providing a simple road map for excellence. With their Silver accreditation success, We are Vista Ltd is certainly working to realise their people potential.”      

The Vista team believe that their clear strategy and focus is what has helped them achieve silver status. From their recent engagement survey 97% of the Vista team believe in the business plan, understand how their roles impact it and are excited about where Vista is heading.    

Vicky Idle, HR Director at Vista commented; “Embarking upon the Investors in People accreditation has enabled us to understand how well our people practices are working but also provide us with an external benchmark against others within the same industry. We are delighted with the Silver accreditation and this is just the start of a journey of continuous improvement as we stride towards creating a truly healthy agency.”   

Vista have continued to enjoy a successful 2016 with a number of new business wins across the automotive and technology sector, whilst also delivering communication led events from their core services internationally.
