We work as a virtual extension to your team

We provide dedicated, expert, professional account management to guide you through every step of the process from set up through to reporting, delivery and ROI metrics. 

It is important that employees recognise that you are supporting them fully through our specialist programmes. We can customise and co-brand the Career Refinery as well as create bespoke collateral, including handouts and explanatory introductory webinars and videos. 

Measuring impact

There are a number of ways in which we can assess the positive impact of the programme on managers and their teams:

  • Surveys before and at the end of programmes indicate and quantify changes such as increased confidence, clarity and engagement
  • Feedback from line manager(s), team and other stakeholders 
  • Employee engagement surveys. If you don’t currently have a survey in place, we can help to implement this

All comprehensive career acceleration, engagement and retention programmes are developed by our experts to support you and your employees throughout their career journey with you.

This fun and interactive session shows women how to talk confidently and unapologetically to get the balance right.

From career breaks and imposter syndrome through to smashing the glass ceiling and the art of self-promotion, this session will leave women feeling more confident and empowered.

Hear me roar: Unleash your inner lioness: This workshop explores the theme of #LikeAGirl, a well-known campaign which reclaimed ‘like a girl’ as a positive phrase and no longer an insult. We examine the prevalence of gender bias in the workplace and give tips and strategies to confront and change it.

Embrace your imposter: Imposter syndrome comes in many forms – not just self-doubt. This session looks at what it is, how it can manifest itself and why we get it. We’ll take a dive into the realities of imposter syndrome with some real-life case studies and then walk through some solutions to help overcome the feelings of being an imposter in the workplace.

The Power of No: It might be tempting to say yes to everything. It might feel like we’re setting ourselves apart by taking extra responsibilities or working late. However, saying “No” and setting boundaries at work is crucial for many reasons. This session looks at five types of boundaries and how to set them for the benefit of everyone.

This session will give participants a deeper understanding of how this translates individually, leaving with practical advice and feeling more comfortable and confident with the topic.
