High Speed Training's mission is to deliver training that helps people to be engaged, effective and safe in their chosen career and it identified several opportunities to do just that during the pandemic. A Personal Protective Equipment training course was offered free of charge to learners, benefitting 9,000 health care workers. High Speed Training also provided a free Mental Health for Teachers course which was completed by 1,000 people.

Founded in 2008, the Ilkley-based company is one of the UK's leading e-learning providers with more than 160 certified training courses on subjects ranging from data protection and minute taking to Diabetes awareness and anti-money laundering and financial crime.

The private sector company's ethos is driven by four values: we are all learners too, we build our company together, we are a team beyond our four walls and we leave things better than we found them.

Reflecting this High Speed Training offers family friendly flexible working and personal development plans to build fulfilling careers based on hard work, not long hours and there are social events throughout the year.

A firm believer in giving something back to the local community, High Speed Training gives its 71 employees one paid day a year for volunteering. During the pandemic the firm supported a local organisation delivering resources to frontline workers and those self-isolating with a donation and staff time to train participants. It also donated money to food poverty charity FareShare giving enough to provide 56 families with a meal for a week.

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

When it broke the company record for most certificates issued to learners in a month, High Speed Training arranged for a caterer to make pancakes for staff and to celebrate its year end results the company organised a virtual beer tasting event with tasting packs delivered to employees.

My Team

94% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

To encourage employees to share what's going on in their lives, the firm set up a #fourwalls social channel where they can post pictures of their home life from their pets to a scenic walk and home baking which has proved very popular with everyone, including with the leadership team.

Wellbeing

87% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

Employees were sent care packages containing pampering items, treats and all that was needed to have a tea or coffee break. Virtual cross team Tea and Talk sessions were introduced and a buddy system was set up for those who wanted to get to know someone outside of their team.

Quote from the top...
“The accolade of great engagement levels is a good measure of progress but the goal isn’t and has never been the number. Our goal is to build a great business together that brings out the best in our team. The truth is no company can become an exceptional place to work without that desire coming from within so I want to thank everyone at High Speed Training, who are an amazing group of people to work with. World class in fact!”

Dan Jordan, CEO - High Speed Training
