Almi Tankers is proud to announce that it has not only retained its Silver recognition according to the Investors in People standard but has achieved Gold accreditation following an assessment conducted in September 2020 remotely due to Covid-19 by Investors in People International. Higher levels of accreditation indicate performance amelioration in people management, benchmarked against global industry practices. This achievement could not have been accomplished without the willing, honest and open participation of all Almi Tankers Head Office team members, whose continuous commitment to our values, professionalism and efforts to work together as one team towards achieving our vision, have been invaluable.
The Investors in People (IIP) standard is a UK framework for improving business performance through the training, development and management of people that has achieved international recognition over its 30 year history with a community of 15,000 organisations across 75 countries. In 2020, Almi Tankers’ benchmark exceeded the IIP benchmark by 58 points and the Transportation and Storage sector average by a substantial 96 points while holding 3rd place of 55 organisations in total in this sector. Almi Tankers is the only shipping company in Greece to hold a Gold accreditation from Investors in People. By maintaining this recognition, our team has accomplished an objective that was set at the establishment of the company in 2009 – the initial accreditation was achieved in July 2011 and renewed in July 2014. Almi Tankers has always identified its people as the key contributor to its success and had pursued the Investors in People recognition in order to officially declare its commitment to helping its people fulfil their potential and recognise their contribution.
Almi Tankers intends to further optimise the way it manages people through the management of change process and by constantly implementing our philosophy of continuous improvement.
Congratulations to the whole team!
