Our other participant in the Agenda Staff Challenge is Mat who he is aiming to put leadership on our agenda for the future! In keeping with Agenda’s commitment to making our business a great place to work, Mat’s programme is an exciting concept for the development of our employees.
July sees the launch of the ‘Agenda Leadership Academy’, which Mat has designed to help identify our leaders of the future by building on their existing skills and giving them management specific training. The programme received a lot of interest internally and following the shortlisting interviews, we were blown away by the potential of our employees.
Mat is working in partnership with Encompass Development, a local hull-based training provider, to deliver a 12-month programme. We are lucky enough to be in a position to offer this training to 2 of our employees that particularly shone during the selection process. They’ll benefit from a structured process of observations, ‘off the job learning’, 1-2-1 mentoring, increased responsibilities, professional discussions, e-learning and classroom sessions.
Upon completion, not only will they be in a great position to progress into a leadership role, they will also hold a Chartered Management Institute Level 3 in the Principles of Management and Leadership.
Both Mat and Mic have delivered great staff development initiatives as part of their projects and they build on our commitment to investing in our employees, as our people are the key to our success.
The winner of the staff challenge will be announced later this year.
