With the turbulent economic times we have seen over the past 7 years organisations have been under immense pressure to cut costs, while increasing productivity. This has seen many organisations reduce head-count, with the resultant increase in demand on those staff remaining.

Initial reaction for many in 2008 was to cancel (or severely restrict) Training Budgets. This was quickly realised to have been a ‘knee-jerk reaction’ and that there were severe impacts of not training staff for the new demands being placed on them.

With no sign of the economic situation returning to the situation pre2008 there is immense pressure on HR teams to ‘prove’ the value of training to the business, and this is being requested in the form of ROI. 

This programme will be facilitated drawing on the experiences of the participants and building on their knowledge using a range of techniques to reach all learning styles. This will include, but not limited to self-reflection, discussion, group exercises, and Case Studies. It will be supported by the theories and models by leading HR academics and practitioners, and by CIPD research.
