Forum discusses learning and development issues
According to performance development consultancy, Maximum Performance, 79% of managers could improve business results and productivity if they received appropriate ongoing people management training. This was one of the findings from a training survey of 600 UK managers.
The challenge of working out what is ‘appropriate’ people management training was discussed at the Maximum Performance Learning and Development forum which took place at the Theatre Museum in Covent Garden recently.
Choosing the correct training suppliers and current personality models available today for HR professionals, were amongst some of the other topics discussed at the event.
Jeff Benveniste, director at Maximum Performance said: "The Learning & Development Forum – Meeting the New Agenda, was an opportunity for like-minded experts and HR professionals from varied industries to discuss the extremely important issues impacting on organisations today, regardless of size, sector or specialty. Motivation and growth of staff is obviously a huge issue, which can impact severely on the overall profit of an organisation".
One of the speakers at the event was David Moorcroft, CEO of UK Athletics. He gave a presentation entitled ‘Selecting and introducing the right assessment tools for customers’.
Commenting on the role of learning & development in today’s work environment, Moorcroft, said: "As UK Athletics grows in its scope and capability, it is clear that good people managers are needed to enable growth. Therefore, essential to organisational success are activities and programmes, which motivate and inspire the athletes and help the people who work at UKA to become great managers".
