Over the last few weeks, we have been keeping in contact with the furlough team to make sure that they are staying happy, active and sane during the isolation period.
We were pleased to hear that a few of our team members have enrolled themselves on CPD courses, enabling them to become subject matter experts.
Two of our members from the Environment and Sustainability team have been studying industry related courses with the aim of being able to understand the needs and requirements of their candidates and clients in greater detail. As well as this, they want to be able to express opinions and thoughts in relation to Environment and Sustainability across their network of professionals, opening up conversations and being able to add value. Well done Katie and Greg, I'm certain this dedication of your time will prove to be beneficial and will only provide opportunity for you to explore your candidates needs and wants even more.
Hannah from our Sales Support Team is undergoing her CIPD qualification, which broadens her understanding in the world of HR. Keen to take steps into this industry, Hannah has been thinking about studying this qualification for a while and she started it before the COVID-19 crisis, however, being on furlough has meant she can spend more time on her studies. Good luck Hannah!
One of our newer team members, Ella, has been studying a qualification in Nutrition. Ella loves fitness and was an avid gym go-er before the lock down. Ella's partner works for her local gym and during the lock down has been offering free gym classes to our team. Ella's course is a level 5 qualification made up of 12 different modules. Ella chose to study this course as it is something that interests her and it is something that is useful to know in day to day life. It's quite a long course, so now is the perfect time for her to be putting her head down and studying.
Well done team, continuing to keep your brain active and increasing your knowledge and awareness in these areas during this tough time is amazing.
