Introducing Investors in People
They also need to be given clear direction and be supported by inspirational and effective management practices. Investors in People helps organisations improve productivity, meet goals and adapt to change.
What Investors in People can do for youInvestors in People recognises the pressures faced by the health sector and if you work with us you will realise that our business improvement approach is highly versatile and does not involve any extra paperwork. It’s your performance improvement that is most important.
We have significant experience of working with health sector organisations, including BUPA and a vast number of NHS Trusts. Investors in People has helped these organisations tackle a range of different issues, such as workforce planning and the need to better utilise non-professional staff.
Following the cessation of the Improving Working Lives assessment, Investors in People is working with NHS Employers to continue to support this agenda and provide an alternative framework for health organisations to use, which will underpin their work to date and further develop their management practices.
Investors in People is supporting the delivery of the Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF) by putting the outcomes of KSF into an organisational context – is the review and development of staff done in such a way that it supports the organisational goals? We can help an organisation to identify and articulate its top level objectives and how all work undertaken within the organisation is done to achieve these. Work is not done for work’s sake, but with an aim and objective at the heart of it. Investors in People helps to ensure that the hard work taken to develop KSF is of benefit to an organisation.
"Investors in People helped us to drive through our cultural change, strong leadership has been devolved and this has empowered our workforce. Now an integral part of our working processes, the Standard has become a way of engendering our corporate spirit."
Linda Cordingley, Internal Review Co-ordinator, Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust
"Investors in People has changed the practice hugely. Our working processes and training have become more structured and formalised. Our performance has been turned around – we’re now far more efficient, cohesive and organised.”
