Learning & Development Networking Event hosted by SouthWestern

On July 12th we hosted the members of the Cork area Learning & Development network. The network members meet once every 2 months to promote best practice in the area of L&D. Each member hosts the network in turn and this month it was the turn of SouthWestern and our HR/L&D team!  
I was delighted to share our story of winning Cork Company of the Year 2012 as this was a key area of interest for our guests.
We heard from our guest speaker - the acclaimed HR/L&D expert Samantha Plant from Paramount HR who gave an insightful talk on 'The strategic Influence of Human Capital'.
Our own head of HR, Aine O'Sullivan gave an overview of our commitment to our People here at SouthWestern and we heard from L&D specialists, Dolores Mahony and Monica Murphy in our unique and structured approach to promoting service excellence to our Employees when it comes to their own development.
Our guests included professionals from a variety of industries from Pharma to Financial Services who expressed admiration for our blended learning initiatives and in particular, our E-Learning success story. We finished the morning with an hour for networking and refreshments.
We are looking forward to the next L&D networking event in September which will be held in UCC.
Well done to all concerned!
