Employers across Leicestershire are being urged to make the most of local support being made available to help build their skills, improve performance and achieve their full potential, thanks to a new Investors in People Centre, launched earlier this month as part of a national refreshed network.
The new network was welcomed by John Hayes, Minister of State for Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning, who said: “I am enormously encouraged that, even in these difficult times, so many British companies understand that their responsibilities to their people and their communities go hand in hand with their responsibilities to their shareholders to make a profit.”
Simon Perryman, Director of Employer Engagement at the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) adds “Investors in People will continue to play a key role in inspiring and enabling companies to adopt this ethos and transform their approach to training. Thanks to the new network of expert delivery centres, it will now be easier than ever before for local employers to use the Investors in People Framework to boost their business.”
The Investors in People Framework is a proven business improvement tool that is used by organisations both large and small. Research conducted amongst Investor in People organisations has shown that 80 per cent have increased levels of customer satisfaction and 70 per cent have improved their productivity.
Stephen Smith, on behalf of Emb-Excellence Ltd, the leading enterprise and economic development company responsible for delivering a range of business improvement services, including The Investors in People Standard across Central England – which includes Leicestershire comments “Our experienced team has a strong track record of assisting local businesses in their development and growth and is proud to be part of the national Investors in People delivery network. By matching what people can, and are motivated to do, against what the organisation needs them to do, the Standard successfully demonstrates how your staff can drive your company forward and improve its bottom line.”
