Business Issue

After a period of recessionary pressures followed by a return to some positive economic growth this large building society wanted to better understand the views of its employees in relation to the Societies’ policies and practices on career development and equal opportunities.  A survey was commissioned to cover the whole employee population to produce findings that would inform learning and development plans and investment.

How We Helped  

Initially we analysed the quantitative survey findings and produced a full report of responses, an analysis of career development and equal opportunities information and made recommendations for learning and development and organisational improvements.  Following this, we conducted some qualitative research using focus groups, to better understand the causes of the views and opinions highlighted by the quantitative survey.

Outcomes and Results

The Focus Groups enabled a cause and effect analysis to be developed and identified precise and robust recommendations to be prepared for a Board sub-group responsible for implementing change.  We recommended actions in relation to: executive leadership, building a performance development culture to be shaped by a framework for manager and staff development, specific manager responsibilities for people development and key topics for development in leadership and management.  Many of the recommendations were accepted leading to new initiatives in career management and policies for equal opportunities.
