Good Relations Limited run a full training programme called ‘The Academy' to supplement training courses provided by their parent company Chime. The Digital Academy is a monthly training programme which keeps the agency inspired with the latest technologies, tools and businesses. For example, the last session was focused on how brands are using social tools such as Snapchat. They also have a unique training and development partnership with Google. Lunch & Learn sessions run at least once a month on a variety of subjects for varying levels, they aim to be fluid and based on what employees would like to learn. Experts from within the agency run the sessions and feedback is always provided to develop them into the most useful format. Bespoke sessions are set up as and when they have access to industry experts through their network and external sessions are set up with suppliers. They hold monthly ‘Good Stories’ events which see them bring inspirational speakers into the agency to share experiences over a drink. Employees at all levels are encouraged to bring guests in. To date they have secured speakers from the BBC, Channel 4, Google, Facebook Instagram, as well as a number of high-profile, current influencers. An ongoing monthly performance and feedback review, linked to personal development processes, helps identify required training needs. The Chime Internal Training Programme courses run throughout the year for different levels across core competencies: consultancy skills; digital; harnessing free insight and business development.

Every month Good Relations reward an employee with a ‘Passion Day’. This is an opportunity for an employee to take an additional day’s holiday to pursue a particular passion or hobby – from singing in a choir to some extra training to run a marathon! Employees simply describe what they would do with a Passion Day, and then the company select a deserving candidate each and every month. As an agency that fully supports and encourages a good work-life balance, Good Relations find the Passion Day initiative very effective, in ensuring employees know that their hobbies and passions outside of the working environment are supported.
