NCAB Group UK Achieves Gold Award for Valuing People

Reading time ( words)

IIP – Investors In People – has accredited NCAB Group UK with a GOLD Award which recognises the company’s commitment to its staff, training, structure and management.

As one of the UK’s leading PCB suppliers, they have become one of the top 17% of companies who succeed in being accredited GOLD standard by Investors In people after applying.

Ann Harwood – Business Support Director advised that NCAB UK team had been working on the IIP accreditation application since June 2021 said, “Being accredited with the Investors in People award is an excellent achievement. It shows our existing staff, prospective employees, customers and the public, that we are a committed company to leading, managing, motivating, training, improving and outperforming in key business areas. To achieve the GOLD award we were assessed against an IIP framework that reflects the best practices in high performance working in three areas – leading, supporting and improving. It is a very rigorous process and we are delighted to say NCAB passed with flying colours.”

What does this mean for you, the customer? 

Quite simply, reassurance – that NCAB UK is on a journey of continual improvement, focused on aligning our people management with our business goals and ambitions. Ultimately we are committed to drive improved business performance to stay ahead of the curve of ‘what excellent looks like’.

To achieve the award NCAB UK had to demonstrate evidence of how it shows leadership, support and improvement in its company structure, staff and business. It had to prove how work systems are in place that inspire and motivate staff; instil trust and ownership and offer recognition and reward alongside structured working. The way staff are managed and developed and offered continuous improvement was demonstrated as well as the ability to sustain success, respond to change and focus on the future.

NCAB UK’s Business Support Director advised ‘Achieving the Investors In People accreditation is clearly evident that as an employer and a business NCAB UK is proud to be one of those leading the way. We have a UK team that is well-supported and trained, motivated and managed with targets and goals for staff as individuals and when working together as a business. Ensuring staff are valued and encouraged is vital for any successful business’. 

NCAB UK holds the IIP Award until 2024 when it will be re-assessed for its GOLD level accreditation – or further examined if applying for the Platinum Standard.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

07/08/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In more than one conversation while discussing the industry this week, the themes have included industry turmoil, lots of business opportunities, and the urgent need to build out to meet changing demands. In fact, our July issue of PCB007 Magazine, which publishes later this month, will focus on these very topics. It’s definitely one not to be missed! These themes also emerged in this week’s top five news items as well. Top stories include an acquisition in the soldering machinery space, sales and service expansion in Mexico, industry data from SIA on semiconductor global sales data, and strong financial numbers from two China-based manufacturers. Now, with the U.S. Congress putting its focus on the PCB industry, things could really heat up. It’s going to be an interesting year.

Catching up With Author Ed Chambliss: Fixing a ‘Broken’ Business Model

06/22/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
I love books, especially good business books. In fact, I read three or four a week which I believe makes me a very discerning critic when it comes to ones with the right message. "A One-Legged Stool: How Shareholder Primacy Has Broken Business (And What We Can Do About It)" by Ed Chambliss is one that can help us in both business and life. It has the right message. This book is so timely and extremely important now because Chambliss brings to light one of the great wrongs in the thinking of the last century, an error that has broken business for the past 50 years—the idea that we are all in business to make money for our shareholders and (and all others, employees, customers, and vendors be damned). We all know where this has gotten us.

Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?
