Tue 28 March 2017, 09:30 – 11:30 BST
Title: HR Issues Forum – Valuing people at work – New Management Code of Practice on Diversity and Social Inclusion
Date: 28th March 2017
Location: Dover Street, University of Manchester
Speakers: Professor Helge Hoel, Dr Anne McBride & Roger Chapman from IDG and Investors in People.
Last year the BSI launched the BS 76000 standard that says people are inherently valuable and are an organisation’s biggest asset. The standard provides a framework for any organisation to put processes in place that will help support that relationship. To facilitate the practical application of the standard, a set of Codes of Practice is being developed, with diversity and inclusion being the first.
Explains Professor Hoel: “The way in which an organisation values its people is at the heart of its success, and it is becoming increasingly recognised that a competent and principled approach to people management and development is essential for organisations of all sizes, types and sector.
Dr Mcbride added: “Valuing and embedding diversity and inclusion within organisations, and their relationships with customers, supply chain partners and the communities in which organisations are located, is an essential part of valuing people.
What is the benefit to your organisation?
- Organisations of all sizes and in all sectors can benefit from the application of this to ensure that the knowledge, skills and ingenuity of people are important features of organisational core values.
- Adoption of the Standard provides a basis for the design, integration and operation of systems and strategic initiatives that involve all those in the organisation in a manner that delivers sustainable value creation.
- BS76000 assumes that the active involvement of the entire workforce is desirable and that social inclusion and diversity are uncontested pre-requisites of an organisational governance process. The Standard also provides a diagnostic framework for organisations that are ready to develop more mature and transparent systems of governance.
Everyone who works for or on behalf of an organisation can benefit from the application of this Standard, it encourages the ambition and strategic direction of top managers to focus on organisational design, people management and development processes to enable value creation.
Top managers, small business owners and other key decision makers are accountable and responsible for ensuring that strategic, tactical and operational decisions harness and deploy people effectively.
Roger Chapman from the company IDG and Investors in People will focus on "Putting it into practice" so that you will be able to take away your learning and apply it to your workplace immediately.
