Hotels, sports centres, cinemas and even zoos offer conference space for hire. Whilst it may be tempting to opt for the unusual in a bid to sell the conference to your delegates, purpose-built conference centres provide the optimum learning environment in a dedicated, distraction-free zone.
Company meetings can be incredibly productive and an ample opportunity for teams to come together to plan strategy, organise events or set goals and objectives. However, they can also be the source of great unproductivity and used as an opportunity for staff to catch up on what they watched on T.V. the night before or have shallow discussions about the same old subjects.
We’re proud to announce that we’ve started Lane End Conference Centre’s 50th year in business on a high.
Returning to work after the festive period can be a frustrating experience for both business owner and employee. Several weeks spent away from the desk can lead to a lack of motivation and desire to perform as workers contemplate the prospect of a dark gloomy January in front of a screen.
Workplace training should be embedded into any business that wants to thrive. With continually changing technology and increasingly competitive markets, training your staff to become more adaptable to change will only benefit your business. So, what is the true cost of not training your staff?
As we approach the festive countdown there is always a danger that businesses may suffer the consequences of reduced productivity in the workplace. Keeping your staff motivated during this period can certainly be a challenge. So how can companies ensure that crucial things such as team development and personal learning don’t fall to the wayside in favour of some sneaky online shopping?
From corporate seminars to sales, health and safety or management courses, different tactics are now required to engage and motivate your workforce.
Lane End explore's why online training, only, simply doesn’t work as well as classroom-based training and understand why successful communication requires face to face intimacy and a higher quality of interaction here.
