“Oliver James is not about sitting still, it’s about moving forward. For us to do that, we need to continue to invest in our people. Our learning and development programme caters to every individual and encourages our employees along a career path that is visible, with no boundaries.”
James Rogers, Group Managing Director
Learning and development has always been at the core of the Oliver James Group. As the business has grown, the portfolio of services and programmes available to the staff has increased significantly. As such, the Business Academy was created to ensure that all employees have the tools and resources available to them, to grow with the business and develop professionally.
The approach is simple: all employees are involved in a core programme, which grants them access to relevant education designed to develop their skill set, enabling them to master their role.
Business Academy provides a varied approach to learning. Workshops encourage employees to learn from peers, whilst digital training technologies enhance collaboration, online sharing and facilitate remote participation. Perhaps most importantly, every individual has access to one-to-one, tailored coaching to accelerate their development.
“The Business Academy aims to ensure the career ambitions of our employees are not only met, but exceeded. By encouraging professional development and providing access to learning tools, training and qualifications, we’re rewarding our employees for the pivotal role they’ve played in driving sustainable business growth from day one.”
Kenny McPhail, Head of Talent, Learning & Leadership
