‘Musgrave has done so much work to create an inclusive culture and align our leadership with that’
Musgrave Group’s leadership programme is a CPD-accredited course that promotes the development and leadership qualities of those working across the group.
The opportunity to develop individual talent is high up the agenda at the business and among its three-tiered strategy is the tagline ‘we can do anything we put our mind to’, a statement that aligns with the company’s efforts over the last year during which significant changes, colleague challenges and customer concerns in retail were among hurdles it faced.
Beatrice Atcheson, digital designer and leadership and management facilitator at Musgrave NI, said: “Musgrave has done so much work over the last few years to create an inclusive culture. One of the biggest focuses of that was to look at leadership and to align it with the way the culture was going, to unlock the potential. We looked at the key attributes of a good leader, put that together into a leadership programme and already more than 30 managers have undertaken the course with 55 more in waiting.”
Ms Atcheson said the course will be offered to independently owned Musgrave staff, as well as the company-owned units. So far it has run six leadership courses including during the pandemic.
She added: “Because this course is completely in house and been designed from scratch, this award is a great accolade. It’s a personal one.”
