AMSRO and IML – significant discounts across a range of membership services

Our new partnership with IML offers AMSRO members exclusive member access and significant discounts on IML’s products and services, providing members access to:

The Business of people

People are our business and developing opportunities for senior talent across the industry, a key focus.

A person’s talent and technical skill probably made them quite successful in their previous, non- managerial role. But the talent that makes someone a great salesperson, accountant or engineer is not the same talent that makes him or her a great manager. Managing people, products and services require further development to prepare for a role’s shift in focus – from delivery to directing.

Research shows that managers have the greatest impact on staff engagement and account for at least 70% of the variance in employee engagement scores across business units.

Management capability is even more important for small-to-medium sized businesses (SME). Often, there is nowhere to hide in SME’s, so management skills must be developed to reduce staff turnover and maintain an engaged workforce.

The Corporate Membership offer

IML Corporate Memberships are custom built to support your staff at every step along their leadership journey. From first time ‘accidental managers’ to experienced leaders transitioning into executive roles, there is a range of tools and services to create the best managers and leaders for your organisation.
