Training and development
Building a capable workforce
The main focus for our training is mandatory induction and refresher courses to ensure our colleagues are competent and confident in the roles they undertake, but there is also plenty of scope for additional development too.
During the pandemic, there was increased demand for on-line resources and our global learning platform ‘Mylearning’ continues to be used extensively to enable access to development materials virtually. To keep people safe, induction materials were offered on-line where possible which provided an opportunity to showcase the wider materials available and enable employees to be familiar with self managed learning from the outset.
Alongside the delivery of training on anti-bribery and corruption and business ethics to significant numbers of employees, additional development resources being introduced in 2021 are targeted at our supervisors who are key to successful operational delivery and employee engagement.
Anti-Bribery and Corruption
We have recently refreshed our training programme on Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC). To ensure the training is effective and reaches those who need it, in addition to all new employees, all managers and staff with responsibility for making any financial decisions and for controlling assets have been prioritised to undertake the new ABC training and to repeat it annually.
