The programme achieved its goal of reaching the 90th percentile for engagement scores one year early. By 2015 the engagement had moved to the 91st percentile, from the 19th percentile in 2011.
In 2016 the engagement scores increased further to reach the 93rd percentile.
In 2015 the programme won a Gold Brandon Hall Excellence Award in the ‘Best Results of a Learning Programme’ category.
Results showed completion rates in the very high 90s and an improvement in the quality of the PDPs after attendance on the programme.
In particular there is a positive difference in scores for attendees vs non-attendees and their direct reports against 4 key statements in the Gallup Q12 survey:
- ‘I know what’s expected of me at work.’
- ‘There is someone at my work who encourages my development.’
- ‘The mission and purpose of my company makes me feel my job is important.’
- ‘In the last 6 months someone at work has talked to me about my progress.’
In addition, evaluation of the development centres show:
- Overall engagement is 7 percentile points higher for people who have been on the programme compared to those who haven’t.
- Job satisfaction is 7 percentile points higher for people who have been on the programme compared to those who haven’t.
While there may have been other factors and changes that will have affected to the results, having employees attend the development centre has contributed to improved organisational performance.
We’re proud to share that this programme was shortlisted for the CIPD Best HR/L&D Supplier
