We’ve been shortlisted for our work with the Talis People Programme
The programme included a training and OD programme which was innovative, creative and stimulating. Seeking a more engaged workforce being managed effectively with timely communications, resulting in high achieving teams and productivity. After recognising that key areas within the organisation required attention Talis selected Call of the Wild to help design and deliver some of the key components of their people programme.
The outcomes were exceptional and included increased productivity and sales together which a much improved staff retention rate combined with new vision and values.
The awards take place in December at the Pavilion at the Tower of London.
