Learning at Work Week

Posted on 13th May 2021

We are so excited that the week beginning 17th May is officially Learning at Work Week. This is a whole week dedicated to the importance of continual learning and development at work, which here at The Maine Group, we believe is imperative in the attraction and retention of your people. It's been shown that providing training at work improves employee performance and engagement, increases productivity, increases innovation and new ideas and strategies, and reduces employee turnover!

To celebrate this, we are offering a number of complimentary Training Taster sessions from the suite of training courses we offer. These are running every day at 2pm and are completely free of charge, all you have to give is your time.

Get valuable insights into the 4 most important areas of learning for people in business this year:

  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Mental Health
  • People & Talent
  • Executive & Operations Assistant Training

Take a look at our schedule below and sign up!

Monday 17th May @ 2pm - Diversity & Inclusion: What should go into your strategy for D&I in 2021

A recent survey has found that 3 in 4 companies plan to review their Diversity and Inclusion policies and hiring practices for 2021. After a year which has recently seen The Black Lives Matter and the Me Too movement, this doesn’t come as a surprise, so there is no time more important than now to ensure we are focused on diversity and inclusion within our businesses.

Join us for this FREE Taster Training session  as we walk you through:

  • Understanding the benefits of a robust Diversity and Inclusion strategy
  • What your D&I policy should include
  • How to be inclusive - behaviours and values to champion
  • Integrating D&I into your hiring strategy
