Allstate NI beat off stiff competition to win the award for excellence in development of leadership at the Belfast Telegraph's annual business awards on 17th April. The judges were particularly impressed with Allstate NI's strategic commitment to develop strong and empathetic leaders and the investment made in leadership development (at all levels of leadership) through a variety of programs ie Lead to Succeed, Energy for Life, Emerging Leaders in association with Queens University and Trainee TM & Trainee SM talent management initiatives.
To date, 192 line managers across all sites have completed the nine month Lead to Succeed program which espouses excellence in leadership through development of leadership and business skills. 180 leaders from Trainee leaders up to Area Leaders completed Energy for Life early this year. Leaders were deliberately targeted as phase one of this program in order to support health and wellbeing amongst this group and enable them to promote the benefits of the program amongst all employees.
Allstate NI was recognized for its appreciation of cultural differences in adapting the Energy for Life program to suit the Northern Ireland audience. The company was held up as an example of Northern Ireland business leading the way through pioneering programs such as Energy for Life and Lead to Succeed (a totally home grown concept).
The Allstate NI Training Team would like to thank the company Lead to Succeed Trainers for the hard work and dedication they put into the program and the Energy for Life project team and performance coaches in the U.S who partner so closely with us on this program.
