I was delighted to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, to talk about how he is growing the organisation after leading its buyout from the UK government.

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 2016, Paul led the buyout of IIP from the UK Government and the organisation is now a Community Interest Company.

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 is a Chartered Fellow of Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and a Companion of the Chartered Management Institute.

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.
  • The impact of reaching IIP’s goal of having 1 in 10 people in the UK work for an IIP-assessed organisation
  • And much more!

Thanks, Paul!
