We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again (and again); people are our #1 asset. As such, training and developing our people is at the heart of our business. And our commitment to training is one of the main reasons that people want to join us – and why they choose to stay and build their career with us.
Starting with the personal career development plan, we identify the skills that each individual needs to consistently be the best consultant, business thinker and people manager. We equip our teams to do the best for their clients because we recognise the impact this has on the continued success and reputation of our own business.
Smart people are challenging and want to be challenged! At an international level, the H+K University – our global training and development programme – combines best practice from the global WPP and H+K networks to deliver a curriculum for best-practice approach to communications and consulting.
Alongside the University, core communications skills are taught and kept sharp through courses including writing, digital communications, media relations, presenting, strategy development and campaign planning. We also build business skills in financial management, mentoring, networking and new business pitching so that our consultants are equipped for the challenges at any level.
Our creative spark also burns brightly through workshops to encouraging storytelling and creativity, as well as regular brainstorms to keep new ideas flowing.
We are proud of the talents that our consultants bring to the business, and we invest to ensure that these continually grow, equipping our people to become trusted advisors and valued partners to their clients.
