By cheering on the UK's three million sporting coaches, the team behind UK Coaching takes a key role in keeping communities active. The small charity, based in Leeds, made sure it didn't drop the ball during a challenging year by communicating regularly with its workforce.

Videos, inspirational quotes and wellbeing advice were shared to keep spirits up as team members, in turn, gave instructors and trainers across a wide range of sports and activities – from grassroots to elite level – a shoulder to lean on. Learning and development is at the core of the charity's ethos. UK Coaching develops courses that help coaches support the needs and dreams of the people they teach – but the charity's mission goes further.

Everything that team members facilitate is seen as an opportunity to open up possibilities, helping people grow in confidence, get better at what they do and connect through the medium of physical activity. The charity says: “When community leaders grow in confidence and feel better connected, they will achieve amazing things for their local communities.”

Developing new products and services has kept employees busy and motivated. The charity appointed a new head of People andCulture in January 2021 who will develop a new structure for regular meetings and feedback.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

The Senior Management Team have weekly meetings where leaders discuss, strategise, and plan ideas for implementation. This was especially useful during the pandemic, where leaders took account of staff feedback to ensure the organisation stayed connected and communicated key messages, objectives, and priorities to each team/department.Monthly company update meetings have also been implemented.

My Manager

Managers attended the Association for Coaching’s ‘RecognisedLeader as Coach Course’ in May 2021, a three-day course as part of a people development project to further enhance coaching and feedback skills, to have a group experience, and to look at ways of working of the Professional CoachingBodies. Managers are also undergoing mental health awareness training.

Wellbeing

To encourage staff to talk and support each other, the organisation’s ‘We Care’ channel was used to facilitate discussions to help those struggling or feeling alone. Email check-ins and advice on looking after wellbeing were sent out to employees, encouraging them to look after themselves with regular nudges and reminders.
