Business, What's On
Newry and Mourne District Council and the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) have just launched their latest Investors in People (IiP) group scheme programme. There is a strong recognition that ‘good people mean good business’ and to be successful during challenging times, companies need to utilise talent available, build effective team work and encourage leadership at all times. Now eleven proactive companies within the District 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 5 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 web site 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. Workshop tutorials, on-site business mentoring and ongoing assistance ensures that each participating organisation is provided with the necessary support to review and improve business practices leading to assessment and potential recognition as an Investor in People. The programme is the result of a partnership between Newry and Mourne District Council and DEL and both part-fund the project. If you are interested in participating in any future programmes or would like further information please contact Ciara Newell, Investors in People Unit, on 028 9090 5351 or email
