Investing in people

Newry and Mourne District Council and the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) have launched their latest Investors in People (IiP) group scheme programme. Eleven proactive companies within the council area have signed up to participate in this business improvement programme and are taking the steps not only to sustain their businesses during this difficult period but to grow them. The Group Scheme Programme  provides organisations with a structured straightforward framework to benefit from using an internationally recognised business improvement tool – Investors in People. The programme itself will be delivered through a series of five workshops which stretch participants to benchmark their current people management and development practices and improve how they: strategically plan, effectively manage, communicate, train and manage individual, team and company performance. Support is provided through group style workshops, on-site tailored consultancy and an interactive website containing an extensive resource library. The programme will help develop a more professional focus and enable companies to utilise the asset key to business success, their people. Anyone interested in participating in any future programmes or would like further information contact Ciara Newell, Investors in People Unit on (028 9090 5351) or email ciara.newell@delni.gov.uk
