People Matter

Some organisations treat  people badly as they pursue profit at all costs.

Yet this is short-termism of the worst sort.


As you travel around and visit various companies, you will invariably see a poster or plaque in reception claiming 'Our people are our Greatest Asset' or "We are Investors in People:".


Yet few of those companies act as if they believe what they say in reception.


People are an organisations's greatest asset - but only if the organisation can release their potential, their contribution, their innovation, their ideas.


This doesn't just happen - it happens when the organisation creates a high potential culture, appropriate procedures, and most of all - development opportunities for the staff to keep adding to their skills and knowledge.


People are not 'human resources' but they can be a valuable source of innovation.


'People' ands 'profit' are not in any way mutually exclusive - they are inextricably linked. Organisartions that fail to recognise - and act on - this are doomed to poor industrial relations and low contribution levels from their staff.
