Corporate Membership.

The one-stop solution for maximum productivity.

Most of us either know, manage or are an ‘accidental manager’ — someone who has, by choice or chance, become a manager without proper training.

With just 1 in 5 managers formally trained and equipped with the vital skills necessary to engage and motivate teams, it’s little wonder that poor management and leadership is the number one culprit for lost productivity in the UK, equating to £84bn wasted every year.

When a staggering 97% of organisations undergo change annually as it is, and we enter an uncertain time for businesses, it’s critical that your senior teams can guide your workforce through those rollercoasters and continue to get the best out of them, whatever challenges are thrown at them.

Thankfully, there’s a simple solution that’ll validate the quality of your senior teams’ skills, demonstrate your organisation’s integrity, and doesn’t mean expensive training and time out of the office.

What is Corporate Membership?

As the highest accolade achievable in management and leadership, Chartered Manager (CMgr) status gives your senior teams the credibility to lead by example, while the invaluable benefits of CMI membership make them, and all your managers below, self-sufficient and accountable for their own development.
