The A Better HR Business podcast looks at how consultants and tech firms in the broad Human Resources field grow their businesses; and how they help employers get the best out of their people.
Today we're joined on the show by Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, a Community Interest Company aiming to make work better for everyone.
Prior to leading Investors in People (IIP), Paul was a Director at the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, an executive non-departmental body that offers guidance on skills and employment issues in the UK. He led the development and implementation of strategic programmes to create sustainable skills solutions with joint investment from industry and government.
Paul studied Human Resource Management, graduating in 1994. He is a Chartered Fellow of Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and a Companion of the Chartered Management Institute.
In 2016, Paul led the buyout of IIP from the UK Government and the organisation is now a Community Interest Company.
Investors in People works with over 10,000 organisations, providing digital diagnostic tools, advice, support and assessment against their internationally recognised Frameworks. Their network of 350 skilled and experienced Consultants work with organisations across 70 countries, but predominantly in the UK.
In a wide-ranging discussion, Paul and I talked about:
☑️ Investors in People's (IIP) mission and how being a community interest company contributes to making work better for millions of people.
☑️ The importance of coaching conversations and performance conversations in the workplace.
☑️ Why the lack of proper manager training impacts productivity and employee well-being.
☑️ How will impact society IIP's goal to have 1 in 10 people in the UK work for an investors and people organization.
☑️ And much more!
