In 2021, we entered a new phase of growth at Fishawack Health, centered on creating a people-led culture that empowers our team members to do greater things for our clients and the healthcare professionals and patients they serve.
Learning and development play a foundational role in achieving our vision, inspiring our teams to imagine a healthier world while giving them the tools and skills they need to build the connections that make better health a reality.
This year, we developed several initiatives to provide an exceptional and value-adding learning and development experience for our employees. These programs are based on our employees’ values and needs and empower them to envisage a sustainable future at Fishawack Health. Here are some of our highlights from the past year:
We launched our Pack Academy
With more of our teams working remotely, our employees wanted better solutions for home learning. We launched a new on-demand learning hub—The Pack Academy. Our teams can enroll in numerous courses ranging from negotiation training to sessions on coaching and mentoring, and everything in between.
Most recently, we added monthly ‘TED Talk’ style seminars to our Pack Academy training program. During each session, internal and external experts spend 20 minutes deep-diving into the topics we care about most. The talks cover equality and mental health, UK Disability History Month, social media for health, mindfulness, behavioral science, and more.
We helped leaders drive innovation
In June, we launched our leadership playbook series, run across 4 leadership levels: emerging leaders, new leaders, advanced leaders, and pioneering leaders.
The training program focuses on practical skills that empower our leaders to create an environment in which their teams can innovate, express views and opinions freely, and take calculated risks.
We gave the Professional Development Team a new look
As part of our commitment to our people-focused culture, we expanded our Professional Development Team with 3 new hires—a learning experience designer to create valuable on-demand learning, a partner, and a new director. We will also hire for a new coordination role in early 2022. Our purpose is to create a career experience that feels like home.
We developed a personalized learning experience
This year we empowered our teams to help define their learning journeys, creating tailored experiences bespoke to their needs. Today, employees at any level across our 21 offices can request training suited to their personal requirements. If the training requested does not already exist, we’ll build it, creating a truly personalized experience for our teams.
