Sainsbury’s wanted to develop their graduates’ awareness of their personal impact and to increase their understanding of the interpersonal skills needed for working in a team environment whilst bringing to life Sainsbury's leadership behaviours.
Impact designed a Community Action Learning project based at a primary school. The graduates were challenged to develop a green theme across the school, and thus bring sustainability to life.
"This is the first project we have undertaken with Impact; our graduate induction programme has been traditionally very corporate - lots of slides and senior speakers. We strongly felt we wanted to provide an experience for these valuable new colleagues that better reflected the direction we are moving in as a business. Their takeaways were very much about increased self-awareness and a great sense of camaraderie amongst the cohort, an experience we shall definitely repeat." - Sue Round, Head of Leadership Development
