Creating Healthy Organisations

In June 2016 we published the Innov8 report Creating Healthy Organisations: diverse leadership, inclusive talent management.


Based on detailed focus group work with 7 very different NHS organisations, the report considered why, despite numerous quality interventions to improve the diversity of the NHS leaders, sustained progress had not been achieved.

The Report made recommendations for improvement at organisational and team level (readiness for change) and identified 4 areas for Innov8 to focus on (building capability for change) which are senior leader support, mid-level manager development, mentorship for diversity and a new programme, Resourceful Resilient Change Makers aimed at people in your organisation that have an explicit operational role in developing a more inclusive and diverse organisation.

The Resourceful and Resilient Change Makers Development Programme was initiated as a direct result of the recommendations emerging from the June 2016 Innov8 report - Creating Healthy Organisations

A key recommendation of the focus group report is that diversity and inclusion practitioners should work as a team alongside HR, OD and L&D practitioners.  As a collective this team should have shared responsibility for delivering the desired culture change.  It is understood that to achieve this aim the requirements of all practitioners is considerable.  Therefore as a way of supporting the development of this group, the Yorkshire and the Humber Leadership Academy have commissioned the delivery of a bespoke development programme.
