MSC R&D's success depends on the commitment and quality of our people.

So, in early Summer we began the next part of our Quality initiatives and started the Investors In People accreditation process.  There are 9 key indicators for the standard with 3 themes making a total of 27 themes for assessment.

We are delighted to announce that MSC has achieved the IIP Certification (valid for 3 years) at the Developed level in all 27 themes and only narrowly missing the “Established” level.

The IIP assessor providing feedback said that some organisations who had achieved Gold standard (under the old scheme format) had failed to meet the Developed standard under the new tougher regime, so MSC R&D was highly praised for achieving this.

Indeed, benchmarked against other businesses in our field which achieved the standard, MSC scored 20 marks higher. Well done to everyone for being involved in this process.
