 Steve Corkerton - HR Director, Border Force:

'The Institute consistently achieves that rare balance of cutting edge workforce thinking combined with a practical perspective of what is possible in real organisations. The IES HR Network provides an opportunity to hear some outstanding thought leaders, meet fellow practitioners and discuss experiences.'

'a reliable, trustworthy and client focused strategic partner, providing London boroughs with expert knowledge, new ideas and external challenge that have supported real improvements across the London local government workforce.'


  Paul McCann, Group HR Director, ISG:

'Membership of the IES HR Network is something I have valued for several years. The CPD and coaching opportunities have provided me with challenge and support. My colleagues have benefitted from development sessions with IES experts. The evidence-based research and training is relevant and practical.'


Dean Morley, Director of Human Resources, Kingston University:

'The IES HR Network has been particularly valuable to me in moving organisations and sectors as their robust research based approach provides sector specific insights as well as bringing this together into cross-industry insights. Their workshops allow individual organisations to draw different options and routes dependent upon their aims & context.'
