CMI hands out first chartered management status awards

The
first 53 British staff to achieve chartered management status have been
unveiled by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

The
award hopes drive greater productivity and better management.

Research
by the Council for Excellence in Management and Leadership shows there are 4.5
million managers in the UK, yet 36 per cent of organisations say their managers
are not proficient.

To
qualify for the chartered status, a manager must demonstrate three years’
practical experience, the backing of line manager, fellow staff and peers and
must pass a rigorous two-stage assessment process by independent assessors.

Ivan
Lewis MP, minister for adult skills, said: “There is compelling evidence of
management skills shortages hampering business. Chartered Manager is a vital
step towards maintaining up-to-the-minute skills in the workplace and tackling
this longstanding issue."
