Newsletter - February 2022

Now that January’s been and gone, we can finally settle in to the future & look forward!

Welcome to our February update where we celebrate all things Learning & Development and share some of our projects for the months ahead.

Dan and I set out to create a truly unique approach to finding and keeping talent. So, after 22 years of professional recruitment, in February 2020 we integrated our pioneering L&D department to support you, our clients, to grow and nurture great people. We live by a simple foundation that Everybody’s Different and have something special to offer. Do you remember the Oscar Wilde quote: ”Be yourself; everyone else is already taken”, well that, is exactly the way we believe it’s possible and vital, to add value when you grow your team. Whether you’re taking on an extra pair of hands for a few weeks or a full team for a new department, it’s the differences between people that makes the impact. 



With that in mind we are excited and delighted to tell you about a partnership with Sheffield Skillsbank meaning you could claim up to 60% funding for one of our Post Pandemic Business Innovation programmes. These are expertly designed to support your people to feel, energised, engaged, and connected. A much-needed boost after the last couple of years! Why not pop over to our website here and have a look. Jen and Jess are ready to talk you through the options. 



We’re holding our first L&D Breakfast on Wednesday 16th Feb at 8.30am at  the beautiful venue that is St Catherine’s House, home of  Flourish Enterprises in Balby. You are very welcome to come along. Here’s a link to book your place around the table.
Our HR Forums have been running for over 20 years and valued as ‘a warm and welcoming place for HR professionals to come together to share ideas, ask for help and learn together’. We provide legal updates as well as interesting workshops to add value for your teams. If you are interested in joining this incredible group, please contact Jess and she will be glad to welcome you. 



Finally, we turn our attention to the workforce of the future and how as a company we are passionate about supporting and developing young people to understand themselves better. With mock exams very much the talking point in schools, colleges and Universities across the region, we have taken our combined experiences and put together a guide for students and their families, to enter the last few months of learning with more confidence, less worry and a personalised approach based on the best science and simple tools available. Find the tips for transformation right here in our LOL, Love of Learning resource.


All that remains is to wish you, your teams, and your loved ones a safe and successful February. We look forward to seeing you in person over the coming weeks.

Best wishes
Felicity King
Partner and Head of L&D.
