These sessions are very popular coming up to Christmas time so make sure you book these sessions early (October – November). A lot of our clients like to supplement their online learning tools with periodical (annual) training opportunities to all staff. These are usually rolled out over a period of time (usually over two weeks) at different times of the day to ensure that all staff get to access the training directly.
We collect attendance lists and collate feedback for your records.
Group Facilitations, Workshops and Focus Groups
Often organisations want independent interventions with a wider scope within larger teams and across teams. These can be specifically designed to suit your particular circumstances. Talk to us about our services that can support a more tailored training option. Below is a case example:
Our client had recently been through a disruptive work cover claim from an existing employee who was also due to return to work. The dispute had contaminated three different disciplines across the organisation.
The client wanted the teams to refocus and get a better understanding of what each group does. They also wanted the team to develop some core values.
The client was concerned about all staff members’ resilience levels, health and well-being and their engagement in their work and with the broader organisation.
After some detailed discussions the client engaged us to undertake a three-stage approach; collect information via an employee engagement survey, conduct key in person interviews, and conduct a number of focus groups after the information had been consolidated to develop an action plan moving forward.
The feedback from the process was that most staff were engaged, there were some staff that were not and were acting on misinformation and there were some broader organizational issues that were identified where strategies were developed to address those gaps. The sort of feedback that we received included:
‘it made me feel heard’,
‘it improved the trust and overall relationships between us and management’.
