Podcast 61: Bev Messinger of IOSH on vision, values and engaging people
Bev Messinger is the CEO of IOSH. A former HR Director, Bev understands how important it is to include people in developing a vision and ensuring everyone is on board. Bev talks about the switch from HR Director to CEO and how putting people at the heart of the charity is crucial to the last three years of transformation.
Most people say it’s all about people but Bev actively articulated how she has transformed IOSH by listening to people in the organisation and including their advice and input in the vision. She balances that beautifully by recognising that hard decisions have to be made as well and not everyone will be on board all of the time. It takes a highly-tuned sensitivity to know when to include the voices and when to take a stand and make your own decision. Where is your focus? Is it on the commercial decisions or listening to people with empathy? How do you find the balance between the two?
