Impact USA: LTEN Excellence Award Winners!

Impact International, in partnership with Celgene Corporation, Announced as a Winner in Learning Content at the 2016 LTEN Excellence Awards!


Impact International has been named the Learning Content award winner at the 2016 LTEN Excellence Awards, honoring best-in-class learning and development initiatives within the life sciences sector. 

In partnership with Celgene Corporation, Impact designed and delivered a 12-month development experience for selected high-potential, Director-level leaders. Participants were immersed in a leadership journey including 4 live modules, various virtual elements, and an action-learning project where participants collaborated to deliver on real business challenges. Participants had various opportunities to build their skills around effective leadership, executive presence, organizational knowledge, stakeholder management and accelerating high performance team dynamics.

A baseline assumption for Celgene is that developing a bench of high-potential Director-level leaders in a systematic way is critical to preparing the organization for continued and sustained growth in a rapidly changing pharma/biotech business environment.  It was clear from the beginning that Celgene has a strong learning culture. Impact partnered with a seasoned Celgene L&D project team to design a powerful, multi-modular, live/virtual blended leadership program starting in April 2014.

BAE Systems have been shortlisted for the Graduate Scheme of the Year Award at the Personnel Today Awards 2016.
 
This award recognises employers who optimise their graduate recruitment programmes to attract and nurture the very best talent in the most innovative and effective way.
 
BAE Systems, in partnership with Impact International have developed the powerful and experiential Graduate Developing You (GDY) programme that is now in its third year  - with over 600 graduates completing the programme to date. Complementing on the job learning, GDY offers participants with challenges, development opportunities, skills enhancement and coaching both at a personal and team level. It is split over three modules and spans 18 months. Throughout the three modules, the graduates discover much more about BAE Systems and themselves  - how their style affects other people, how they influence others and help them to do a better, how to react in diverse situations and what their vision is for themselves and BAE Systems in a volatile and complex world.
 
Quote from BAE Systems Stakeholder – Karen Gregson, UK Learning and Development Lead
“The GDY programme provides a platform for graduates to develop their leadership capabilities and prepare for future roles within the business. It is aligned to the Global leadership behaviours which outline what is expected from our leaders now and in the future.
