The Inside View from Malcolm Seaton

At a time when lending from banks is severely affecting the ability of even well established businesses to operate and grow, and the post-credit crunch economy is restricting spending, we need to look closely at how we can "do more with less". Improving business systems and processes and developing a team who are confident and committed can go a long way to transforming a business. We have all met the employee who does an "ok job" but who has raised thousands for charity or runs a large sports association with flair. Embarking on Investors in People demonstrates the commitment of the business to all stakeholders. Through the Investors in People journey, you will start to gain fuller commitment and discretionary effort across the business. Your people will become more highly motivated, more involved and encouraged to embrace a culture of continual improvement.

Achieving Investors in People recognition will give performance benefits which lessen the effects of economic downturn and set you up to take full advantage of growth opportunities.
