  • The independent British jigsaw puzzle and board game company, Gibsons, has been recognised with the Investors in People Standard accreditation for the firm’s own commitment to its staff.

The family-owned business was founded in 1919 by the managing director Kat Gibson’s great grandfather, Harry Percy Gibson, and has been celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Based in Sutton, Surrey, Gibsons has spent the past century building and nurturing strong relationships between employees, customers, and suppliers.

Over the past 100 years, the Gibsons team and product offering may have grown but its values have remained the same, keeping its tagline, ‘Bringing People Together’ at the heart of everything it does.

Gibsons Wellbeing Strategy includes training and development, flexible working, health and wellness and buddy schemes, as well as lunchtime Pilates classes and meditation. The team is encouraged to focus on each other’s strengths and believes in a continual cycle of learning and development, as well as taking a break to play a quick game when things get hectic.

Additionally, Gibsons also provides work experience to those who need the opportunity, via Sutton Youth Offending Scheme and the children’s charity Jigsaw4U giving adults and young people the chance to work as part of a team and to develop key skills that can help them get back into the work place.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.

Working with clients across the globe, Investors in People enables organisations to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.
