We are CIPD Enterprises’ exclusive partner for online qualifications in HR and L&D, so you can be confident your teams are learning from the experts. 

Driving digital behavioural change

Equipping your people to not just adapt to change but to drive changewill create change-agents who transform the impact your organisation has on its customers and create the culture your business needs to continually adapt.  

We create lasting behavioural change and unlock your teams’ potential through a connected learning experience which we prepare in collaboration with you, ensuring it’s relevant to your organisation. 

Embedding a data culture

Now more than ever it’s important that businesses make decisions based on insights and data, but do your people have the right skills to use data in a way that creates the impact you need? 
It’s no good having access to data if we aren’t using it to see situations in a new way, to surface new insights and create real change for the better. We understand how to stimulate the shift from looking at data to sharing insights, moving you away from siloed opinions to collaborative problem-solving. 

Accelerating digital marketing

Marketing in the digital world requires deep marketing and sales alignment and a different set of skills, which are embedded across your organisation - not just in your marketing team.

Our marketing acceleration programmes show you how to understand the digital landscape and the new tools, channels and tactics to leverage. Together, we'll build a strategy to accelerate the performance and productivity of digital marketing for your organisation. 

The future of work is data-enabled – is your organisation?

Thinking digital-first has been an important mindset for a long time, but we now find ourselves in the position where it is a matter of extreme urgency and relevance. Adaptability is now the defining quality of organisations which will survive and thrive. 

This means identifying the skills you need to grow and maintain in your organisation, and the people and teams who need to transition to new skills, roles and ways of working as a result 

You need people driven by data and insight who can lead through change, people who are driven by data and can turn facts into real business insights, and teams who can harness the technology at their fingertips to drive profitable business outcomes, improved customer experience and operational efficiency. 

What you need is a different approach to learning.

2/3 workforce lacking digital skills by 2030

In a 2019 report, McKinsey & Company reported that 21 million workers—or two thirds of the workforce–might lack the necessary basic digital skills employers will need in 2030. Five million of those workers could be acutely underskilled in digital.

10 million lacklustre leaders

What's more, McKinsey report that 10 milion of those people will lack basic leadership and management skills, while a similar number could lack skills in decision making and advanced communications.
