Latin American restaurant group Las Iguanas have won the Investors in People (IiP) Award 2014 for Excellence in Reward and Recognition.  Already holders of the IiP Gold Standard Award, this latest recognition is an opportunity for Las Iguanas to set themselves apart from other high performing organisations and confirms their ongoing commitment to staff development. Las Iguanas were the only restaurant operator to be shortlisted at the inaugural IIP Awards held this month in London. Angela Da Silva, Head of HR said: “We are so thrilled to have been recognised with this award. We have been working with Investors in People since 2001 and the opportunity to benchmark our people strategy against the IIP Standard and other businesses across all sectors is incredibly valuable. Our industry is all about people and we think it is paramount to recognise and reward the team at Las Iguanas as a whole and as individuals, whether that be through enhanced training and development or once in a lifetime opportunities like our Race to Rio, our annual staff trip to Brazil which is now in its tenth year.”   In other news Las Iguanas are also set to open their latest establishment in Leamington Spa on 7th July. With the simple philosophy: ‘eat well, eat fresh, eat Latin’ the group have also become the first casual dining chain to be awarded Vegetarian Society accreditation.
