Chris assisted us with obtaining IIP by looking at our staff relationships and protocols advising us how to improve the quality of our policies and processes to create a more open working environment and staff belonging. He was always professional and courteous but with clear goals, and a lot of patience, we are now the proud holders of IIP status.

Swift Credit Services see the benefits of using HR-Focused…

‘In December 2009, after nearly two years of trying to achieve Investors in People accreditation by ourselves, we linked up with Chris Newport at HR-Focused.

Chris visited us one day a week and provided the focus and specialist IIP knowledge at a time when we really needed it. He worked closely with the Management team and helped us through the myriad of IIP speak. He provided a clear path for us to follow and helped to implement a number of effective processes that are still in place today. His approach was practical and friendly yet professional.

After 10 months of Chris’ support, we achieved Investors in People accreditation at our first attempt in October 2010. Chris still supports us today to ensure that we stay on track and I would not hesitate in recommending his support to your organisation.

For any organisation that is serious about achieving Investors in People accreditation and want that specialist, personal support, Chris will help you achieve your goal’.
