At Dignity HR Solutions we aim to provide independent, strategically focused advice and interventions to assist organisations meet the challenges they face and improve performance and employee relations. Alan Boyter has extensive experience of the boardroom across the NHS in Scotland, in total 25 years at this level.
Outside the NHS Alan was previously a non executive director of Dundee College. He is currently a non executive director of Dundee Contemporary Arts (the DCA), and a subject expert on the People Committee of the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service.
Alan was honoured to be given Honorary Professor status conferred by the School of Social Science, Business and Management at the University of Dundee.
Alan was awarded the AON/CIPD Scottish Human Resources Director of the year award for his work in the NHS in Glasgow. He has taken two NHS organisations to full Investors in People status (IiP), and is particularly proud of the work he did bringing four different faculties from Harvard University (Harvard Business School, The Kennedy School of Government, Health and Education faculties), to Edinburgh to teach NHS Staff, mainly clinical staff, but also managers and trades union representatives. The teaching was supplemented by case studies which achieved significant efficiency gains for the organisation and resulted in 48 staff being awarded Masters Degrees in Leadership Practice by Edinburgh Napier University.
Alan has a passion for helping people to improve their lives. One of his greatest achievements was to establish the award winning NHS Tayside Healthcare Academy which has helped over a thousand people out of social exclusion into employment. He drove the NHS Lothian Healthcare Academy and achieved award winning results with the Prince's Trust. He leaves a legacy in work he did with the Scottish Prison Service helping offenders not to return to a life of crime. He lead the Project Search initiative which aims to help young people with a disability into employment. He describes this work as humbling and the young people he worked with outstanding. Just before he left the NHS all of the Project Search interns had gained employment, the first time such an outstanding result was achieved.
