Laughology CIPD people awards finalists
We are proud of the programmes we create. We know they are different, fun and innovative, so do our partners and clients. It’s great when others recognise this too.
We recently entered our Big Chats, Little Chats coaching programme in the CIPD People Awards and we’re delighted to be in the finals of not just one category, but in two!
We are finalists in Best Coaching and Mentoring category and the Best Private Sector L&D initiative category. For a small (but perfectly-formed) company, we’re not doing bad as we’re up against the real heavyweights such as Lloyds, The Dorchester Group, Money Supermarket and NKD. We entered the awards with our 21st century coaching programme BC,LC using O2 as our case study.
BC,LC is a blended learning programme and we used O2’s workplace engagement platform and learning management system to deliver the fun and engaging short videos we created. We also utilised webinars and virtual classrooms to engage a wider group. We also used face-to-face facilitation, mainly with champions who are now fully accredited BC,LC trainers. They deliver workshops and support sessions across the business. The results were impressive. Retail saw a 23% rise in sales and an increase in engagement scores for managers who had been through the BC,LC programme. To learn more about how BC,LC can work for you take a look at the content and watch out for our new O2 case study coming soon. And we’ll let you know if we win the award.
