Silver standard awarded to a special firm

UNLICENSED medicines manufacturer The Specials Laboratory has become one of a select number of organisations in the country to maintain the prestigious ‘Investors in People’ Silver standard by demonstrating its commitment to staff. 
Established in 1999, the Prudhoe-based firm has been awarded the high profile accreditation following several days of evaluation that included assessors speaking to key team members, examining employee satisfaction and looking into its vision for people development. 
The Specials Laboratory is one of the UK’s leading makers of unlicensed medicines, which are commonly known as ‘specials’. Specials are prescribed when a patient needs a very specific formulation of a drug that isn’t available as a standard licensed medicine. 
The UK’s leading accreditation body, ‘Investors in People’, works with companies to improve business performance and provides resources to help company growth, with a particular focus on people management. 
Head of Investors in People, Steve Burrows is delighted to see The Specials Laboratory awarded the standard once more. He said: “Achieving the Investors in People Silver standard is something that any organisation should be truly proud of.
“It is the sign of a company which is very committed to good people management practice and we’d like to congratulate The Specials Laboratory on its achievement.”
Employing around 100 staff across its three sites in Prudhoe, the multi award-wining manufacturer works with thousands of community and hospital pharmacists across the country supplying unlicensed medicines to help patients on a daily basis. 
Sharon Griffiths, managing director at The Specials Laboratory, said: “We’re thrilled to be awarded the Silver Investors in People accolade once again as we place a huge amount of investment into staff welfare and development. 
“Our culture is focused on always putting people first and it’s fantastic to be recognised by Investors in People. Our staff, our customers and the patients we supply medicines for are always at the heart of everything we do. 
“We are committed to providing a special and personalised service and give opportunities for our staff to grow and develop.” 
Along with staff development initiatives, The Specials Laboratory plays a vital role in its local community and since 1999 has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to local causes and charities in the region.
