Northern Media has launched a people development programme this month which will focus on developing each member of the team as a performer and will also support Northern Media moving forward.
The team will be working with personal development specialist Jamie Illingworth from Purple Pebble People. Northern Media have been working with Jamie over the last 18 months and they spent a lot of time planning and devising a structured development plan specifically designed to suit the needs of Northern Media.
The first development event was over 2 days on the 23rd and 24th May at the Holmfield Arms in Wakefield.
The event was the foundation level for the team’s development and the content of the programme was based around a series of success factors ranging from commercial acumen to leadership and continuous improvement. Future events will be scheduled on a regular basis to support the various levels of development.
Each member of the team will also work with, and update, a Personal Development Diary (PDD) which is designed to document and support the individual’s development based around the various success factors.
Northern Media’s Managing Director Chris Elliott has said this about the plans:
“Put simply we want everybody to develop at Northern Media and, as well as their own personal development, we feel the programme will also lead to opportunities and progression within the business.
The team have already been involved in the process as we had a team day last year which was focused on them helping develop a structure of behaviours that we believe need to exist at each level of our business.
We have never done anything like this before so Jamie’s expertise and experience in people development was invaluable in creating the programme and I am really looking forward to seeing the team flourish.”
Northern Media is constantly investing in new ways to improve and develop both the businesses and the team’s skills, so we can deliver better results for our clients.
