Pin Patel, who joined the group as Head of Learning and Development in 2012, has implemented a series of training programmes that maximise the effectiveness of individuals at every level of the business.
The training series, entitled ‘Learn to’, consists of four fundamental levels of training; Learn to Earn for trainees, Learn to Leap for consultants, Learn to Grow for Principal Consultants and Learn to Lead for Sales Managers.
“We have invested heavily in the L&D function over the last 18 months, it’s great to see this pay off and the team make such an impact. Feedback from consultants has been phenomenal and the improvement in performance is impressive.” Adam Buck, CEO.
The courses are based on the 70:20:10 model (Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinge), which advocates that only 10% of learning takes place in the classroom, 20% through methods such as coaching and mentoring and 70% on the job.
“It’s been a challenge implementing a training series that is scalable internationally, but the results have been amazing and we’re really proud of what we’ve achieved" Patel added.NEWS ARCHIVE
