Teesside University has been shortlisted for the UK Investors in People (IiP) Gold Employer of the Year in the prestigious IiP 2022 Awards.

This recognises the University’s commitment to investing in its people and consistently supporting and nurturing the institution’s inspiring community known as Team Teesside.

The award submission outlined how the University continues to listen to feedback, with investment in academic and student support teams leading to significant positive feedback in the National Students Survey, while the development of new career pathways has helped academic colleagues to achieve fantastic results in the Research Excellence Framework.

This recognition follows other workplace accolades for Teesside University, including securing Investors in People Gold status for a fourth time in 2021, while also holding the North East Better Health at Work Award in recognition of efforts to address health issues and healthy lifestyles.

The University has also signed up to the Race at Work Charter, demonstrating a commitment to ensure that ethnic minority employees are represented at all levels in the organisation.

Juliet Amos, Executive Director of Human Resources at Teesside University, said: “It is a privilege to be shortlisted as an IiP Gold Employer of the Year in the 2022 awards.
