Use Case Details

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE) is a public sector organisation which is facing modernization and transformation. It also has a male dominated aging workforce profile in senior management positions.

There is one female director in HR and of the 29 people at the next management level, there are only four women. At least one-third of the 29 people are over 55 and two-thirds over 50.

The project aim was to answer the question of how NIHE could facilitate career development and maximise the performance contribution of all employees in the NIHE, regardless of age, gender or religion.

It was important that internal processes for succession planning and staff development ensured that the NIHE had the skills supply it requires for future performance.
