Investors in People Silver Accreditation

UKP Worldwide has been awarded accreditation against the Investors in People Standard, demonstrating their commitment to realising the potential of their people.

UKPW are made up of a team of thirty and provide brokered international eCommerce and mail solutions to almost all industry sectors. Originally established in 2000 providing international distribution services to publishers, our extensive knowledge in this area has spearheaded our development into direct mail, eCommerce and latterly eCommerce returns.

With the USA being a key market for publishers, we opened our facility in the USA in 2010 and this has helped grow our range of mail services and develop our expertise in USA eCommerce distribution and returns.

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.

Paul Devoy, Head of Investors in People, said “We’d like to congratulate UKP Worldwide, Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, and an organisation committed to achieving success by realising the potential of their people. UKP Worldwide should be extremely proud of their achievement.”

Paul Taylor, Managing Director, UKP Worldwide comments: “We are delighted not only to have achieved Investors in People Silver standard but also to have improved on our previous award against this year’s much higher standards.  We are committed to continually develop our team and equip them with the tools and training they need to help with our continued growth.”

Italy – international mail with double UK return addresses

We wanted to bring to your attention the strict processing guidelines, which have been implemented by the Italian Postal Authority on all inbound international mail.  Any mail pieces containing a double UK return address (a preprinted return address and the correct return address included in a PPI) will be subject to being refused or imposing heavy surcharges.

We would, therefore, ask you to ensure that all mail pieces being sent to Italy no longer contain a visible preprinted UK return address. Whilst we appreciate some clients like to include a return address to ensure undelivered mail is returned directly to them – we can confirm that undelivered mail items are returned to UKPW by the individual postal carriers.  Though undelivered items can take a while to be returned, once received all returned items are processed accordingly and in alignment with our individual client’s requirements.

If you have any queries regarding these changes, please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss these further.
