Investors in People has launched a new leadership and management framework
to encourage organisations to develop more effective leaders for the future.
Ruth Spellman, chief executive of IIP, said the new model would improve
productivity throughout the workforce by ensuring companies invest in future
It covers issues including leadership, management selection, work culture
and how to create an environment that develops successful managers.
"It helps organisations create their own blueprint for cultivating best
management practice. This is not only of fundamental importance to management,
but to all employees as good leadership creates a more productive work
environment," said Spellman.
Research by the IIP, published to coincide with the launch of its new
leadership and management initiative, finds 85 per cent of young professionals
would like to move into management but less than half feel their employer
The poll of 1,000 staff aged under 25 shows only 52 per cent are satisfied
with their career development, while 34 per cent feel the only way to progress
is to change jobs.
