Investors in People: MCL retains Platinum and Gold awards

We are delighted to announce that Mackenzie Construction has retained our Investors in People Platinum Award and achieved Gold status in our Investors in Young People award.


For over 30 years Investors in People has been recognised internationally as a leading people accreditation.  With people at the heart of its success, Mackenzie Construction has sought to retain and improve its ‘We Invest In People’ accreditation since 2000 and has held the Investors in Young People accreditation since 2015.


The Investors in Young People Awards offer a framework of good practice that seeks to reward and recognise employers who have a track record in recruiting, developing and retaining young people.


Similarly, the Investors in People Award gives insights into how well the company is leading, supporting and developing its workforce to achieve business success with expert advice and action plans to support the evolution of its strategy. The process also allows employers to benefit from feedback, recognising and highlighting opportunities for continuous improvements through managing, developing and supporting the workforce within the company.


Andy Dalrymple, Mackenzie Construction’s Managing Director said,

“Mackenzie Construction is dedicated to creating an environment for our people that allows them to progress, develop and thrive. There is no doubt that our people are our most valuable asset, and we are thrilled to have retained Platinum status on our IIP award and Gold in our IIYP accreditation too.

Although we have always been a business which firmly places people at the centre of our thinking, over the last few years we have maintained a clear focus on developing young talent. We know that there is always more to be done to support, inspire and develop young people and our team remains committed to doing everything it can do to ensure we keep attracting the best young industry talent out there.”


Specialist Nicola Dillon praises Mackenzie Constructions’ double achievement,

“On behalf of IIP CIC, I would like to wholeheartedly congratulate Mackenzie Construction on retaining the prestigious Investors in People Platinum accreditation and also the Investors in Young People Gold accreditation. The IIP Platinum accreditation is the highest accolade that can be achieved against the Investors in People Standard and is currently held by only 3% of IIP-accredited organisations. This is a massive achievement seen only by high-performing organisations with strong leadership and management practices over a long period of time. 

Mackenzie is an ambassador for placing their people at the heart of what they do. What stands out is their passion and commitment to consistently grow their own and provide opportunities for young people to learn, develop and complete sector qualifications to reach their full potential and be experts in their field.”
