Rebecca Edwards, HomeServe: How to promote talent within your business
- 1 Min Read
Watch Rebecca Edwards, Director of Learning & Development, HomeServe, discuss her session on enabling ownership and transparency for development at the HRD Summit UK 2020.
Finding good people is only half the battle – creating an environment where they can see clear opportunity to develop and thrive can make or break their time within your organisation.
Development programmes can fail for many reasons – placing emphasis on the wrong skillsets, not identifying potential in the right places, or creating plans that do not hold up to the reality of the organisation. Often though, lack of awareness of what is available can have the biggest impact, killing an initiative before it gets off the ground.
Watch Rebecca Edwards, Director of Learning & Development, Homeserve, discuss her session on how the organisation is creating a culture that promotes from within rather than relying on new pools of talent. Through creating a transparent and open environment where employees have a clear view of both the opportunities available, and the support to discuss their future plans with their managers – even if it’s not staying in their current role – their staff are enabled with the information to take their development into their own hands.
