A FIRM in Huddersfield has completed a contract to provide training for more than 650 employees of an organisation which manages more than 18,000 council homes.
Juice Learning, based at Brooke’s Mill, Armitage Bridge, was chosen as preferred supplier of equality and diversity training at South Tyneside Homes.
The training formed a large part of South Tyneside Homes’ winning submission in awards run by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
Juice Learning’s Diversity Matters programme included films shot on site in South Tyneside Homes’ offices and workshops and at customers’ homes.
Anthony O’Hara, organisational development adviser for South Tyneside Homes, said: “The training they delivered was incredibly well-received, due mainly to the innovative way it was designed and to the enthusiasm with which it was delivered.
“The training was completely bespoke and as such has allowed the organisation to meet many of its objectives.
“Nothing was a problem for Juice Learning, going out of their way to accommodate a full training needs analysis and supporting an opportunity for us to gain external funding.”
He added: “So good was the training, South Tyneside Homes are delighted to announce it won the 2011 CIPD North East ‘Equality and Diversity in the Workplace’ Award.”
Juice Learning provides learning, creative multi-media and memorable live events to cover a number of areas affecting business, including customer excellence, equality and diversity awareness, behavioural health and safety and leadership.
