We recently completed a mini-series in collaboration with founder and Director of Acre Frameworks, Anna Keen.
The main goal behind Acre Frameworks is to provide HSE professionals with assistance toward their non-technical skill development to enable them to progress their careers and have more impact.
It takes more than technical prowess to succeed in health and safety, but Anna believes there’s a shortage of individuals with the skills to drive change and deliver business outcomes. Acre Frameworks is a ground-breaking assessment tool designed to tackle this skill gap head-on.
Anna and her team brought together 50 safety leaders in the UK to develop the Framework assessment tool. By defining, understanding and improving the behavioural and business competencies of safety professionals, it helps teams and individuals deliver more impact for their organisation.
Naturally, this was a really good fit for the Safeti mission and I was delighted to be able to collaborate with Anna to find out what she has learned through her research over the past few years.
In the first Episode, Anna paints a picture of what we were, who we are now and where we are going as a profession. Here’s a taster of it below….
In the second Episode, we talked about the biggest personal challenges for growth with HSE professionals.
The focus for Acre Frameworks
Anna has spent 3 years specifically tackling the skills gaps in the profession and helping people grow to become leaders in the profession.
If you feel like you’re stuck in the mud or at a dead end, listen to this podcast for some inspiration! Here’s a snippet for you to get an idea of what it was about….
In the final Episode, we tackled the ever-burning question of knowing when to move on.There is never a ‘perfect time’, but if you ask the right questions, it can help you make a much more informed decision.
For instance, do you know what your own personal values are? Do they align with your those of the organisation you work for or that you want to work for?
Anna explains why she feels that both of these elements are critical for success and happiness in your career.
Also, have you ever wondered what Indeed.com and Tinder have in common? OK….maybe not, but Anna explains to us why she thinks the two have a lot in common and explains why it’s important.
