Until a couple of months ago, most companies had an action plan in place for business continuity and expansion, but perhaps not for a global pandemic and restricted business operations.
Sadly, for some companies, this crisis may have impacted their business growth or the way they have provided products or services. Customer needs have changed, as has the way they buy.
In response, companies might be in the process of changing their business plans or investing in new IT, e-commerce platforms, or marketing tools. However, companies still need people to manage projects, deliver products and manage changes services or operations.
You might be thinking, now is the worst time to train staff, perhaps not.
Aspire have had one of its most successful completion years, both with new apprentices and upskilling learners who finished their courses in late March - April. We have over 30 success stories from Apprentices and Employers with most learners completing their apprentice or upskill training quicker.
To achieve this, we have had to upskill our staff in online e-learning tools, transform our operations, the way we work with our clients, recruit apprentices, conduct interviews and teach our courses online.
Sir Charlie Mayfield former chair of John Lewis, shared his views with CMI on how LEARNING AS LEADERS will help business owners and managers adapt to change and that learning new skills will play a vital part in recovery. One of the most successful online courses is our CMI Leadership and Management. We are hosting sessions in the coming weeks. If you have an aspiring manager or if you would like to acquire more knowledge and skills that will help you and you and your team turn change into positive outcomes, why not try our taster session. If you take the course, you will achieve a Level 5 qualification and Chartered Management Institute member status.
And don’t forget, this course is 95% government-funded, and even if your employees or apprentices are Furlough, they can still learn and so can business owners. For more information, click on the link here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team will get back to you.
