Off-site training – master our software at People® HQ

August 29, 2017

People Off-site training People® trainer Adam Riggott shows Alan Ward’s HR department how their new HR software works.

Recently, we launched a brand new type of training for our customers – off-site training, hosted here at People® HQ. In our experience, we’ve found that many people learn better when they are away from the distractions of their regular routine. So it made sense to give new customers the option to become HR software experts, in a comfortable setting away from their usual place of work.

How off-site training helped furniture retailer Alan Ward avoid distractions and focus on the software

Last week, we welcomed our very first customers to take advantage of this new initiative. We were delighted to host Gemma, and her colleagues, Angela and Neville, from the HR department at Alan Ward in Shrewsbury – one of the UK’s largest furniture retailers.

After the training finished, Gemma kindly spoke to me to share her experience of her day at our office:

It’s been a lovely day, seeing what goes on behind the scenes here at People®. Seeing the office space and how engaging this environment is has really helped me understand the software, and how we can use it to engage our employees.

I’ve only been in my job since May, and one of my main initiatives was to get a system in place and moving. The software will really free me up so I can really focus on the ideas and initiatives I want to put in place.

Being here has enabled us to really focus on the new system. It would have been difficult training at the office because of work demands.
