IQ-EQ shortlisted in HR Excellence Awards 2020

IQ-EQ is delighted to be shortlisted in the 2020 HR Excellence Awards for ‘Best Learning and Development Strategy’, in recognition of our innovative Basecamp line manager training programme!

The HR Excellence Awards are the most sought after, prestigious and longest running awards in the HR field. As such, they’re considered the benchmark of excellence in the HR community – celebrating and rewarding the organisations and individuals that really push the boundaries of people strategy.

For our category, judges are looking for organisations that invest effectively in the development of their people. Our shortlisting specifically recognises Basecamp, one of the four key strands of Ascent, our signature learning and development framework that places high value on emotional intelligence and demonstrates a commitment to offering leadership training for all.

As a people focused business, we recognise the important role that our line management population undertakes and that is why Basecamp is designed specifically for them.

Basecamp is an innovative and bespoke programme – unique to IQ-EQ. It breathes new life into management training, with engaging exercises, practical, easy-to-apply learnings and high-quality support materials. It has turned professional development on its head by focusing on strengths and being the best, rather than improving on weaknesses. It was also developed entirely in-house, reflecting the calibre of our Talent team while also delivering exceptional return on investment.

Most importantly, it works. Across the group, the quality and consistency of our line manager capability has shown evidence of significant improvement. Feedback has been exceptionally positive and, owing to the positive buzz around the programme, many managers are now actively seeking to get involved.

This latest recognition notably follows our recent shortlisting in the Personnel Today Awards, where we’re in the running for the Learning and Development Award – again in honour of our Basecamp programme.

The winners of the HR Excellence Awards will be announced in January 2021, so we’ll be keeping our fingers tightly crossed until then!
