Award Levels To meet the minimum level for accreditation, organisations must meet all nine performance indicators at Developed level. To achieve Silver (top 5% of organisations), Gold (top 2%) or Platinum accreditation (top 0.5%), organisations will consistently perform at a much higher level of people management, benchmarked against global industry practice.
