Over 40 years ago, Association for Project Management (APM) was established by a small group of individuals who shared a passion for developing the project management profession and creating a central hub for project managers to share ideas, develop their skills and create a professional network.
40 years on this passion and dedication can still be seen both from its members, staff and its board. Having achieved chartered status, APM is obsessed by the desire to achieve excellence and to ensure members have the tools they need to deliver excellence in their work.
APM value learning and development and believe in providing managers with the tools that they need to carry out their job effectively. It has a number of L&D initiatives in place to support its managers and those include management training, coaching, mentoring, job shadowing, secondments to project work and knowledge sharing sessions.
Members of the leadership team act as mentors for managers in need of additional support and provide a safe and confidential environment where they can develop their people management skills.
APM subscribe to an employee assistance programme which offers a range of service which cover all life events including money matters, marriage problems, counselling etc. APM have a health and wellbeing site on the company intranet and links/podcasts for stress management, mindfulness etc. are posted for employees use.
