UK EO Awards Highly Commended: It’s not what you do…
While having a project that recognises and develops internal talent in itself is not new – the judges felt that this was a case of ‘its not what you do it’s the way that you do it’ when they read Care Plus Groups submission about their development of their own bespoke ‘Aspire’ programme.
The Aspire programme pulls together a blended learning programme across coaching, team building, project management and learning styles in which participants identified and worked on actual projects that benefited the organisation.
Part of the organisation’s plan to empower employees, retain and grow talent from within and grow an understanding of the need for future talent, Aspire is now open to all staff to apply for, with the first cohort completing the programme in 2017.
Judges were impressed by the entry and highly commended it due to the self development aspect of this innovation.
