In this talk between Emma Gannon (Writer & Podcaster) and Paul Devoy (CEO – Investors in People) we discuss the problems in the workplace today.
What makes us truly happy at work, and what people can do to make positive change.
Investors in People CEO
‘We wouldn’t let untrained doctors loose in a hospital, so why do we allow it with people managers?’
‘How long did you train to be a manager?’ ‘I didn’t get trained at all!’
‘I spoke to a Dr who told me that 80% of the people who come to him with a mental health issue say it’s because of work’
‘There’s 3 things people want from work; a sense of purpose, doing something they’re good at and having autonomy’
‘People need to feel that there is a sense of purpose beyond profit’
‘Give people high expectations and high support, then they’ll achieve things they never thought was possible’
‘How can we have a better balance between the two (work and life)?’
