Learning and Development is vital to the success of our business and we’re committed to providing our people with opportunities to enable them to grow and flourish.  By upskilling and nurturing home-grown talent we see an increase in performance, our clients see the results in the service we provide and we can expand our skills into new areas.

Our company culture is underpinned by brilliant, creative individuals and the relationships we have in our team and with our clients.  Investing and demonstrating our commitment to L&D is motivational, empowering and attractive to potential new recruits.  We are proud to share examples of development journeys that demonstrate this commitment and celebrate the success of our colleagues.  This #LearningatWork week, we applaud Lauren Smith who shared her learning journey of taking part in her first new business pitch!

Of course, we have had to adapt our L&D programme during this challenging period to deliver effective virtual training, this ranges from monthly technical training sessions on new communications and engagement techniques, to mentoring and management training to help navigate these new ways of working.  You can read more about how we have approached this in lockdown in our recent EG column. We continue to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our employees and have promoted seven members of staff this year so far.

Learning is not just about professional development and we encourage our team to invest in any learning challenge of their choice with a personal development allowance each year, which can go towards something creative or practical, e.g. learning a language or piano lessons.
