IIP framework aims to ‘wake up’ business

first_imgInvestors in People (IIP) has launched a framework to help organisationsaddress work-life balance issues. Chief executive Ruth Spellman said business leaders and HR had been”caught napping” during the rise of one of today’s biggest businessissues. She believes that as a result, employers are out of touch with the realneeds of the workforce. The work-life balance blueprint is a practical guide for all businesses butis not, stressed Spellman, a mechanism for a ‘one-size-fits-all’ strategy. “Employers with a flexible plan in place benefit from happier and moremotivated staff,” said Spellman. The model is designed to kick-start serious questioning by chief executives,steered by HR, about how to manage staff work-life balance demands and how tofit those into an organisation’s own needs and strategy. “Work-life balance is a very serious issue. Chief executives and HRneed to commit to it. You cannot legislate for it,” said Spellman. www.iipuk.co.uk Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed.
