The Johnsons Academy has proven to be a huge success with over 70% of 2017 Academy graduates receiving a promotion within 18 months of completion.
Peter Egan, CEO, commented “We truly believe our people are our greatest asset. That’s why we’ve created the Johnsons Academy, to encourage the talent
within the business and to help our rising stars to develop. We are delighted with
the results achieved so far and working with the Thomas range of assessment
tools has been instrumental to the success of our programme.” Egan added
“Winning the award is the icing on the cake – the real reward has been retaining
and developing talented people from within our business and witnessing a huge
increase in staff motivation.”
In the 2018 group, over 10% were promoted in a short period of time, including one into a senior management role. Further endorsement of the success of the Johnsons Academy has come from winning the 2018 Personnel Today Award for Talent Management as well as being nominated as a finalist in the 2019 HR Excellence Awards for Best Talent Management Strategy.
