Reflections on IEP Members
I have been reflecting on the fact that IEP is an organisation for individuals who help others. Whilst IEP enjoys the backing of leading employers who have become Founding Patrons, IEP's role is to equip individuals working in the Employment Related Services (ERS)/Employability sector with professional status and help them deliver better outcomes for their custumers. It's also about instiling a sense of pride.
IEP members work in a range of industries including, Welfare to Work, Justice and Care. They help their customers into employment and in doing so change lives for the better. So the work IEP members do is important in both social and economic terms because employment - being employable - is key to our wellbeing.
But the profile of our members doesn't stop there - IEP members come from organisations and companies that provide wider services to the operators e.g. recruiters and trainers. It is also attracting individuals that work to provide employability to younger age groups.
As I meet managers and front-line staff across the sector I am struck by their level of commitment. I am also amazed that no-one is telling their stories and encouraging best practice exchange.
So if you work in the employability/ERS field, why not come to IEP and share your experiences with other Employability Professionals?
