One of our core commitments as a business is to give everyone access to new, exciting learning opportunities which can help you develop your career here at Co-op.
That’s why we created Leadfest – our festival of learning. We’re bringing you some fantastic sessions designed to be interactive and engaging. There’s a range of different topics to enhance your personal development, and to help you better understand our Co-op behaviours and what’s expected of you as a leader or a colleague at our Co-op.
For the first time ever, we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing Leadfest to more places than before, meaning everyone can get involved! We’re running Leadfest sessions across the UK from Monday 16 September – Thursday 31 October. They’ll be held in food store training rooms, depots, funeral homes and our insurance and legal services offices all over the country.
You’re able to book onto these sessions now, all you have to do is check out the E-mag schedule on the Leadfest Intranet page. Remember you’ll need to agree to your attendance to these events with your line manager, as it will be at your leaders’ discretion to sign off hours if they think you might benefit from attending an event.
If you can’t join us on tour, you can also check out our Leadfest 2019 Community on MyLearning (our new Learning Management System). You’ll be able to find some of our Leadfest online learning sessions here which you can take part in in your own time. MyLearning is still currently being rolled out to colleagues across the business, and will be available to Commercial and Food operational colleagues by the end of September.
For those of you who want to join some of our Manchester sessions, Leadfest is still ongoing until the end of August. We have a number of events you can get involved in
We hope everyone will take this opportunity and get involved either in person or through our Leadfest community. So, what are you waiting for, book your session today!
