Kensington and Chelsea College placed staff training and development top of the agenda as it led a London networking event aimed at high-profile business leaders.
The college’s Vice Principal, Amanda Hayes and Director of Business Development and Community Regeneration, Shanie Jamieson ran a seminar for Chamber of Commerce members about the benefits of investing in training and development.
More than 50 representatives from well known businesses, including Metro Bank and Wem Technology, took part in the interactive session held at MWB Business Exchange in Knightsbridge.
The seminar explored the benefits of businesses engaging in staff training programmes such as apprenticeships and bespoke training delivered through the college.
Shanie Jamieson, said: “Investing in your staff is one of the best ways to help shape a business to succeed. The right training and skills mean staff will perform their roles competently and confidently.
“As a college that delivers a range of well established training schemes to many local and national level businesses we have found that training programmes often have a ripple effect throughout an organisation, improving, retention, efficiency and productivity.”
