I choose Brathay for our graduate and talent development because my Brathay experience in my early career has been the most useful development I have encountered.

I want our high potentials to have the opportunity to learn in a unique learning environment using experiential exercises as I know it will make them better leaders in the future.

“I didn’t get where I am today by jumping from one thing to another and changing jobs every five minutes. How do they learn anything these days?”

Times, and people, have changed.

It’s a major challenge attracting, developing and retaining talent. With Millennials and Centennials making up an ever-increasing proportion of your workforce, now more than ever you can’t ‘do’ learning to people.

The world of work has changed. We connect by focusing on personal brand, individual strengths, motivations and capability in the context of mutually constructive outcomes.

What worked for Baby Boomers doesn’t work for your new, talented, employees. They’re a more flexible workforce – but more flexible with their loyalty too.

Looking for your next standout business opportunity? These are your lateral thinkers, brimming with great ideas and itching to try them out.

Provide the right environment, and through choice they will develop themselves - and your organisation’s future success.

“Being at Brathay is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It gave me confidence in my leadership capability and I learnt how to engage and draw upon the support of a team. The confidence I gained and the amount I learned has been invaluable and it has enabled me to take on a leadership role much earlier in my career that I would have thought I could”.
