What is PartnerPlus?

PartnerPlus spans all parts of our business, and is a trusted partnering approach combining strategic, specialist and delivery capabilities for mutual benefit, ultimately to improve customer service.

Why is it different?

PeoplePlus is setting its own standards and seeking partnering arrangements to harness the benefits of not only joint delivery, but the sharing of its own resource, capacity, strategy and insight. As a national company which understands the benefits of successful partnering, PeoplePlus wants to use its scale to develop a coordinated quality approach to partnering. By committing to be part of PartnerPlus, partners benefit from being part of a forward thinking approach to partnering, operating with integrity, teamwork and honesty.

How Does it Work?

Communication Regular communication around sector ideas, opportunities and information, new bids and important changes.
Innovation Innovation groups; key partners working together on subjects of relevance, for example workshops, thought events or innovation events hosted around key topics e.g. new opportunities, sectors, geographical locations, responding to or creating new opportunities.
Strategy Strategic partnership working with a key relationship partner, building long-lasting, mutually beneficial, dynamic relationships bespoke to each partner: e.g. shared intelligence, critical friend, feedback, complimentary use of facilities, resource and sponsorship.

We are passionate about building a better society, transforming people’s lives through skills and employment.

Our true strength lies in a collaborative approach, working in partnership so that we can truly understand and navigate social and economic factors at a regional level.
