About

UGL is a global leader in outsourced engineering and construction, asset management and maintenance, project management and through their property business, DTZ, in property services.

The HR team at UGL/DTZ identified a need for clarity and consistency in people management practices (PMP) and leadership across their global operations.

In line with UGL/DTZ’s competency framework the PMP learner objectives are designed for all people managers to:

Discuss and agree the responsibilities of a people manager

Consider the concept of personal style

Develop core skills in communication, dialogue and influencing

Improve confidence and ability to manage staff performance through goal setting and coaching

Improve confidence and ability to manage difficult conversations with all stakeholders

Work collaboratively and build relationships across the business

To enable and embed a long-term behavioural change the participants are taken on a Learning Journey.

Pre-PMP we use self-evaluation and pre-readings

A modular programme, with three-days, non-residential, face-to-face development

Workplace learning continues through online resources, practical toolkits and broadened networks

Since 2012, 200 participants have completed the PMP. We have delivered 21 programs globally across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and the UK. Participants average a 27% improvement in core skills learnt on the program.

“Module 3 provided a completely different experience - very specific and action-based activities that also allow learning, for example, improving the ability to read between the lines and draw conclusions at a high level. Significant in the context of Data Driven Culture / Data Driven Company - this is an idea that we want to implement in our organization - making informed decisions based on conclusions from hard data.”
