Isobar named a Finalist in CIPD Awards
The CIPD People Management Awards, a globally recognized award that celebrates outstanding achievement in people management and development, has shortlisted Isobar Academy – our Digital Creative Programme and training platform - in the Best International HR initiative category.
In todays’ fast-moving digital economy, agencies and brands need to continually invest in Learning and Development to stay relevant. As a digital agency, we know that we need to create training solutions that support the specific skills that enable our teams to deliver digital transformation for clients today, but also that develop the core skills of marketing that will ensure we future proof our business, and our clients businesses for tomorrow. – Nick Bass, Global Talent & Development Director, Isobar
Isobar Academy is a multi-platform, experience-lead learning initiative that demonstrates our creative culture and our commitment to our people’s careers, whilst empowering our people to invest in their own future.
It is split in to two key pillars - The EMEA Digital Creative Programme which is a roaming, experiential-based learning programme, providing clients access to top talent from Isobar’s offices around the region, and enabling our teams to learn about our business, network and sharpen their digital skills. Recent workshops themes have included Service Design, Emerging Technology, 3D printing and Design thinking, and have been hosted in Paris, Warsaw, London and Budapest.
The second pillar is Isobaracademy.com, which is our own innovative digital skills tech platform which hosts content from over 60+ digital learning providers, but is curated by our teams to ensure relevance with our business and the challenges our clients are facing today.
After the announcement of the Finalists, Isobar’s submission will be presented at a final panel judging stage, when all finalists are invited to London to bring their written entries to life. Winners of all categories will then be put forward for a chance to be crowned the 2017 Overall winner. All winners will be announced at a prestigious black-tie ceremony at the glamorous Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane on 26 September 2017. Fingers crossed!
The CIPD People Management Awards are the equivalent of winning an Oscar, all the other awards are lovely to have but acknowledgement by your professional peers separates these awards from the rest ‐ Georgina Corbett Chartered FCIPD, Dandara Group
