ST CENTRAL, we’re dedicated to helping our employees learn new skills and grow their knowledge by investing in their professional development and wellbeing.

As part of this commitment, our Learning & Development team organised our second annual Learning at Work week, which ran from 18th-22nd May, with the aim of encouraging employees to learn from one another.

Learning & Development Team Lead, Cat Harris, said: “We had more than 160 employees take part in the events and feedback so far has been extremely encouraging.”

The week involved a fun programme of internal events such as preventing online fraud, first aid at home, Photoshop for beginners, Spanish for your holidays and how to fix a chip in your windscreen. Lots of people got involved throughout the week with many classes full to capacity.

There was also a Zumba session and a Yoga class for the energetic. And for the creative bakers among us, there was a bake off competition with a prize for the creation that best represented our brand.

In between the sessions, there were daily quizzes and competitions with the chance to win some great prizes, including a Brian the Robot and two tickets to the FA Cup Final at Wembley!
