BMT's Learning & Development Offer

How we have supported learning throughout the Pandemic

We place great importance on learning and development for our employees, so it was vital that during the pandemic, in collaboration with our trusted development partners, we adapted our offer in terms of content and delivery methods to ensure that learning and development could continue - our global Leadership, Graduate and Apprenticeship programmes all switched to virtual delivery; new programmes on leading virtual teams and virtual collaboration communities were developed; and we introduced guidance to employees and managers on how to access our virtual resources.

Uptake of Learning & Development

Last year, we saw a significant increase in training activity across the globe which we believe is attributed to our exciting new range of development programmes and learning platforms which are now available to all employees.  We listen to our members of staff and strive to provide the learning and development opportunities they need, presented in ways way which they find engaging.
