Adviza has been awarded the prestigious Investors in People Standard following an independent assessment in December 2012. 

The charity employs 220 people across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and, of these, 11 were interviewed by an independent assessor.  The assessor found Adviza to be an inclusive organisation which trusts its staff to make their own decisions.  The charity was praised for having a clear set of values and leadership competencies, and for developing flexible and innovative solutions to learning and development.   The assessor further commented that people at Adviza feel that their work is important and are committed to making a difference for young people.

Investors in People is a national quality standard designed to help organisations improve performance and realise objectives through the management and development of their people.  John Telfer, Managing Director of Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP), the organisation that delivers Investors in People for London and the South, said: “Adviza should be congratulated for the way in which management and staff have come together to produce real results. I hope other organisations in the industry will look to them as a great example of what can be achieved.”

Adviza works with schools and colleges, public bodies, charities and individuals to support young people and others at important times in their lives when key decisions need to be made.  This award is just the latest in a line of achievements for the charity: it currently holds the Matrix Standard for the quality of the information, advice and guidance it provides to young people; the Investors in Diversity Award; and has been ranked in the top 40 of the Sunday Times Best Not-for-profit/Third Sector Organisations for the last three years.
