United Utilities learning and development training
We are committed to providing flexible, expert-led training to line managers to ensure they have the skills and confidence they need to handle people issues more effectively. Our Learning Director, Pat Ashworth, recently provided United Utilities with Diversity & Inclusion and we’re delighted to see such fantastic feedback for the award-winning learning and development solutions delivered.
“I just want to acknowledge the success of the Inclusion and Diversity training delivered by Pat Ashcroft across all GM teams.I make no secret of the fact that I was nervous of how this would land. I felt it possible that our people would not engage – or worse feel that they were being lectured and part of a problem.I am pleased to report that the training that Pat has delivered has not resulted in any negativity and in fact engagement has been very high. Many of our people have given unsolicited feedback regarding what they got out this. Many wanted regular refresher session! It has been pretty amazing really.I have sat on the course myself and found that the combination of good course content along with Pat’s ability to engage with our people, making them feel safe to participate and even open up whilst having the right respect in terms of behaviours, has been excellent.Please pass on my thoughts and congratulations on a job well done.” – Mark Booth, United Utilities
