CREATE TRUE BEHAVIOURAL CHANGE AND REAL RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Huntswood’s learning and development services leverage our comprehensive regulatory knowledge and operational expertise to support organisations in developing the knowledge and skills of their people.

We deliver highly engaging programmes that are tailored to the needs of your organisation, whether this be wholesale change or needed on an operation-by-operation basis. These programmes boost the efficiency and effectiveness of staff while delivering cost and time savings. 

Our training solutions can be 'plugged-in' to any other Huntswood service. If you need a team of case-handlers rapidly upskilled to deal with complex complaints, you need a remediation project to go ahead without a hitch, or need your team brought up-to-scratch on new regulatory requirements, our team will be there.

But how do we do this? It all comes down to utilising intuitive, personalised and 'brain-friendly' learning methods that develop critical thinking and problem-solving.

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

CULTURAL AND ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Corporate culture has always been high on the regulatory agenda. However, in recent years we have seen increasing focus on the link between culture and conduct. Firms need to be able to provide assurance to stakeholders, customers and regulators that their culture is fit to support good customer outcomes. 

The power of understanding culture goes far beyond the regulatory imperative. Culture underpins organisational performance through whichever lens you examine it: commercial, customer, conduct or employee engagement. A strong culture aligned to the strategic vision of a firm will facilitate the effective delivery of short- and long-term business objectives.

As part of our service, we assess your firm’s current state, help you develop and deliver a transformation plan, and ensure that organisational development aligns with strategy and capability.

Huntswood’s people are of the highest calibre. Not only do they understand the issue from a regulatory perspective, but they know how to deliver effective training in an impactful way.
