The event held at the Manor House Restaurant in Corby on Wednesday 1st July, involved a variety of local companies; Hampton by Hilton, Welcome Computers, e.surv Chartered Surveyors, Edstrom of Sweden Ltd, Seatons Solicitors and Adaptive IT; whose employees were involved in the six month programme.

The Work Based Support and Mentoring Programme is designed to support employers in becoming a mentor and equip them with the skills to help new employees settle into the workplace. To ensure the individuals have the necessary skills to support others, the package, although not prescriptive, contains; mentoring and coaching skills, team building, conflict resolution and much more. This programme is solely funded by Exemplas and can also be enhanced by other funded courses such as; Apprenticeships.

The event included a speech from Tracy Cosgrave, Operations Director at Evolve who praised those who completed the training and discussed future progression routes at Tresham. Trainer, Kate Cameron who taught the programme and aided all the participants to succeed said: “It has been a privilege to work with such an interesting and diverse range of companies. Bringing together senior managers and managers/supervisors from different sectors gives the opportunity to learn from each other about how to support staff and improve communication. The content of the course is bespoke to the needs of the participants, by responding to the specific issues that they face in the work place. The participants have really enjoyed the programme and the biggest impact for the companies has been where they have embedded the mentoring approaches and improved communications as a key element of their work force development. This six month programme builds confidence and aids to improve communication and productivity within an organisation”.
