Step up to High Performance: the Platinum level of Investors in People
Since introduction of the sixth generation of the Investors in People Standard in Autumn 2015, a select group of organisations have already achieved the coveted Platinum level award. Based as it is on becoming a ‘high performing’ organisation, Robin will outline how this fits within the overall Framework of IIP and outline some of the attributes of being ‘Platinum’. He will also indicate how anyone aspiring to this level of accreditation for their own organisation can take those steps upwards towards achieving it.

Currently responsible for the account management of all IIP-accredited organisations across the South of England, he is a keen proponent of the sixth generation of the Standard and is continually talking to people across the private, public and third sectors about the added value to be gained from this latest version.

When & Where
CIPD Kent Branch
We are the Kent branch of CIPD - the professional body for HR and people development. The not-for-profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.
We have a wide range of organisations and CIPD membership and we respond to this with a full selection of CPD and networking opportunities.
Due to the geographical spread of the county we have 3 area groups – Mid Kent, West Kent and East Kent. Between them they regularly hold sessions with guest speakers on subjects requested by the members. Most events are supported by local companies who host the events and provide an opportunity to meet other HR practitioners.
We also appreciate the specialisms within HR and have Special Interest Groups that meet regularly and occasionally have speakers. These groups include Health and Social Care and Senior Practitioners. Similarly we have smaller bespoke groups, Self Managed Learning Groups that operate throughout the county. These include the Coaching Groups in East Kent and West Kent. We encourage the creation of new groups so if there is not an area covered, why not set one up?
Come along to an event and meet our friendly and welcoming committee members and the wonderful HR community of Kent!
