Scottish Borders Council has subscribed to organisation development (OD) consultancy Echelon’s online management learning resource.
Echelon’s popular ‘Learning Matters’ online learning library contains some 2,000 modules of development and performance support material that underpin quality of employee performance and continuing personal and professional development.
The library contains a broad range of solutions, including:
- action lists that provide performance support on everyday issues
- self-development solutions to build new knowledge and skills
- personal performance diagnostics that assess individual and team performance in a range of key activities and behaviours
- business leader interviews that offer personal commentary from a range of leading entrepreneurs and corporate leaders
- book digests that introduce the work of some of the world’s leading management thinkers
Scottish Borders Regional Council employees will have 24/7 access to learning covering a wide range of subject areas, including leadership, communication, teamwork, finance, coaching and customer relationships.
Scottish Borders Council asked Edinburgh-based training resource providers Ellerton Training Services to source the subject areas of greatest interest and priority. Ellerton Training Services was happy to recommend Echelon’s online library.
The Echelon solutions have the dual purpose of providing new knowledge and skills and acting as just-in-time reference tools to support accurate and productive working.
Alistair Morrison, CEO of Echelon, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Scottish Borders Council as a new client. Our Learning Matters library provides a convenient and low-cost way of supporting employee development.”
Judith Warren, managing director of Ellerton, added: “We are pleased to have been able to assist Scottish Borders Council in meeting thier development needs and to have collaborated with Echelon whom we have known and trusted for many years.”
Karen Niven, Scottish Borders Council commented: “Scottish Borders Council recently acquired the use of the Echelon online library to support the Learning and Development needs of council employees for soft skills courses.”
