PeoplePlus’ mission is to make a direct difference to the lives of 1 million people by 2022. In April 2019, we reached a milestone achievement by impacting 250,000 lives. As a mark of celebration and thanks we invited our partners, clients, customers and colleagues to an event at the Institute of Directors in London on 24th April.
We were privileged to welcome Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Amber Rudd MP and Minister for Sport and Civil Society Mims Davies MP, who were able to share their thoughts on the progress of the Civil Society Strategy and the opportunities presented by effective collaboration across sectors.
During the celebration Managing Director Simon Rouse spoke about the key partnerships that have helped us to achieve this milestone, as well as talking about those whose lives we have directly impacted, commenting:
“As MD of PeoplePlus, it makes me very proud to hear testimonials about the great work we do as an organisation – from colleagues, clients, partners and of course our service users. But it doesn’t make me complacent. It makes me ambitious to help transform more people’s lives more quickly.”
One of the underlying themes of the evening was innovation; and attendees were able to see PeoplePlus’ showcase of innovations on large digital screens. These include our Enterprise Hub, which is a one stop shop for anyone seeking advice, help and support on how to start and grow their self-employment journey. The Intelligent Routeway Framework through which we provide unique Labour Market Data to assist other skills providers to tailor their training provision to match the needs of their local regions, and Skillzminer: an artificial intelligence and machine learning platform which acts as ‘virtual coach’ to support our learners through their work with us and beyond into employment.
PeoplePlus is continuing to work hard to make a difference to as many lives as possible as we work together with our partners and clients in partnership.
