Employees across the city were encouraged to learn and develop skills which could aid their career, as well as discovering new activities to improve wellbeing.
Large local employer, Domestic & General held lessons in Italian, Boxercise and cookery and introduced employee development courses in management and customer service. Over 87 employees are now enrolled in nationally recognised NVQ courses within the company.
Queen’s Road based Brightwave, the UK’s leading workplace e-learning specialist, offered free online training sessions providing practical skills for daily business tasks. Each session was fully subscribed in record time.
Chief Executive of the Campaign for Learning, Tricia Hartley highlighted the importance of raising awareness of self-development needs. She said:
“Understanding our skills needs and what we really enjoy doing is the first step to a satisfying work life and career. Learning at Work Day is all about taking time to think about learning and how it can get us to where we want to be.”
She added: “Record numbers were involved in this year’s campaign. The initiatives to develop work interests, skills and talents will bring numerous benefits for both business and employees and will have lasting positive impact on the UK economy.”
