Productivity in Professional Services

Are you a professional services business with 20-250 staff? This is a fully-funded opportunity to stimulate innovation, professional development and employee engagement.

Run by Ci in partnership with the Institute of Employment Studies (IES), the project is a ‘Proof of Concept’ (pilot) which seeks to understand productivity in professional service SMEs, and test the utility of the successful 10-week on-line development programme – ‘Be Bold in your Career’.

Managers will also be able to attend tailored webinars which will provide them with support to have positive career and professional development conversations with their direct reports. The initiative is seen as a way for organisations to engage their people and stimulate conversations about how to respond to developments including automation.

SME business leaders will be able to take part via a Stakeholder forum that will explore productivity issues within the sector and the outcomes of the Proof of Concept project with the potential to build a larger trial.

The initial pilot is intended to include a maximum of 30 firms nationwide.

How to take part

Interested organisations should sign up by December 14th. SME leaders will be invited to attend an online briefing on December 5th (available as a recording). The programme begins in mid-January.
