So, what is 'Connect'?
Connect sums up what’s important about working here. It's about how we make each person in the business feel connected with the company. It’s about engagement, feeling motivated and knowing that what you think and feel matters to the organisation. It’s about being recognised for doing a great job and making the most of your career. And it’s about us working hard to try and make you happier at work.
To find out more take a look at the Connect video and read about our IIP Gold. That’s the evidence that we 'walk the walk' as well as 'talk the talk'.
These are all words that members of our Connect team used to describe working at Intelligent Office.
We achieved the Investors In People Gold Standard
in March 2012.
Investors in People (IIP) is a nationally recognised framework that helps organisations to improve their performance and realise their objectives through the effective management and development of their people.
Gold is the highest level of IIP recognition which organisations can achieve and is only awarded to those which operate at the pinnacle of people management best practice. Of the over 12,000 organisations that have been awarded IIP in the UK, just 8% have achieved Gold.
Gordon Robertson, IIP Specialist said "I really enjoyed the experience of working with Intelligent Office and you are still the level that I judge all my other clients against. The passion and commitment of all staff and the great example leaders set as role models make it a company I would be proud to work for."
What does this mean for you? You can expect:
- Your contribution to the success of the business to be recognised and rewarded
- Great communication, aimed at keeping you informed about the objectives of the business, how we are performing and how your role has a direct impact on business success
- Learning and development initiatives that are designed to develop your skills, enabling you to continually improve in your role, provide a better service and reach your full potential
- To work in a positive and supportive environment designed to enhance employee engagement and job satisfaction

What's our annual Leadership Weekend?
Our Leadership Weekend is a two day meeting of all team leaders and managers from our sites plus our senior management and corporate team. In 2014, 110 employees from Intelligent Office came to the weekend.
The Star Awards at our annual Leadership Weekend is one of the most widely publicised ways that we recognise the efforts of our employees. The Saturday evening takes the form of a black tie gala dinner where the hotly contested Star Awards are presented. All staff and teams have the opportunity to submit entries for the awards and much competition surrounds them!
As well as celebrating the outstanding performance of our staff members, they also serve as a great motivational tool and underline our commitment to our people.
Get involved in our Academy.
The Intelligent Office Academy is an exciting initiative launched at the Leadership Weekend 2014. As the business continues to grow at pace, Intelligent Office has focused on succession planning and ensuring that we have a pool of trained and experienced staff available to implement new contracts.
The Academy is a two day training session, the first of which was held in February 2015, and attendees included a collection of Intelligent Office’s stand out managers and team leaders. Run by Intelligent Office directors and managers who have been through the due diligence and implementation processes on a number of occasions, the content at the Academy included sharing of experiences and best practice, reviewing of the implementation plan and critical success factors for implementing change successfully.
