Small Scottish companies (under 250 employees) are being offered free consultancy and business guidance from Re:markable (previously known as Investors in People Scotland).
Re:markable (previously Investors in People Scotland) have launched their Skills for Growth Project which is a free consultancy service for small organisations funded by Skills Development Scotland (SDS).
Skills for Growth aims to help small businesses achieve their business objectives with knowledgeable, skilled and motivated employees. As businesses return to a new normal post Covid-19, this has become a great focus than ever before. This is achieved through combining fully funded consultancy from Remarkable and with the support from an SDS employer engagement adviser.
Nicola Dillon, Specialist at Re:markable stated:
“We work with businesses to focus on the key people skills, training, qualifications, and people practices (now and for the future) to support business growth and sustainability post Covid.
“We also speak to a selection of staff from across the organisation to establish feedback on their required skills, training, education requirements to support their growth and the growth of the organisation and also seek feedback on their business and people management practices.”
As part of the program, businesses will receive a detailed action plan on how they can implement and improve strategies for managing, developing, and supporting their people. A feedback meeting is also conducted (which can be managed remotely) to support business growth and signpost the company to any training required and help to maximise any public sector funding/support that is available.
This service is available to businesses in Scotland with between 5 and 250 employees and is completely free of charge.
