Oxford PharmaGenesis continues to boost colleagues’ skills and expertise through a wide range of professional and personal development sessions offered to celebrate Learning at Work Week 2021 (17–23 May).
We commenced the week’s activities with a session on the subject of uncertainty. Many companies and individuals have faced challenges over the past year, and this session was designed to help our colleagues to build their personal and professional confidence.
Other courses held during the week were chosen for their broad accessibility and relevance across different types of roles held by individuals at Oxford PharmaGenesis. They included sessions on behavioural agility, managing conflict, mental wellness, writing with impact and understanding copyright.
“Our company culture supports active learning and we really encourage all our colleagues to participate in the opportunities on offer. Ongoing development is fundamental to supporting our colleagues and strengthening the high-quality service that we provide to our clients,” said Cathy Kirk, Oxford PharmaGenesis Global Learning and Development Manager.
Employee feedback suggests that the initiative has made a difference: one colleague said “I honestly didn’t know how much I needed this course until I sat in it”. Others found the sessions “informative and thought-provoking”, and our presenters were described as “professional, fluent and knowledgeable” and even “amazing!”
Learning at Work Week provides an opportunity for the Oxford PharmaGenesis learning team to gain a clear picture of what works for our colleagues when it comes to development, and to keep improving the options we offer.
Whether through formal training, gaining qualifications or mentoring, Oxford PharmaGenesis values lifelong learning and its role in shaping careers and helping our colleagues to reach their potential.
