A TRING business services company put learning in the spotlight during a special day.

Grass Roots, based in Pennyroyal Court, Station Road, organised a fun day to give employees the opportunity to take part in activities around personal development and learning.

The theme of national Learning at Work Day on May 17 was learning for growth.

The learning arm of the Grass Roots business put together a range of activities and materials including quizzes, problem solving sessions, presentation skills workshops and job shadowing.

All employees were encouraged to participate and understand how learning can help with both job performance and career development.

Learning At Work Day is an annual awareness campaign that has been organised by the Campaign for Learning since 1999.

It is designed to promote and support workplace learning events across the country, drawing attention to the importance of workplace learning skills.

Andy Lister, MD of Grass Roots, said: “Learning at Work Day provides us with an interesting vehicle to promote our learning expertise within the business and remind our colleagues of the growth opportunities that exist for them.”

Tamie Hutchins, head of people development at Grass Roots added: “Learning at Work Day is a great opportunity to put learning in the spotlight.”

The day included on-line quizzes, ‘drop-in’ speaker sessions, 45 minute competitive problem solving sessions and job shadowing opportunities.
