Conferma Pay launch The Leadership Academy

Conferma's Leadership Academy
As part of Conferma Pay’s continued commitment to its employees and organisational culture, we recently launched our own Leadership Academy.

The aim of the academy is to ensure managers are consistent in their approach, expectations and communications with teams across the company to drive a universal experience for all Conferma Pay staff.

Our leaders play a critical role in developing our internal culture. The Leadership Academy is a great way for our people managers across the business to collaborate to share knowledge and experience.  

The first interactive workshop began with building the skills and competencies leaders need to recruit top talent to enable both cultural and company growth.

We encouraged our people managers to think differently, challenge any pre-conceptions and potential unconscious bias. The talent acquisition session involved defining role requirements and interview techniques – not for potential candidates – but for well-known characters including Buzz Lightyear, Snow White, Han Solo and Little Red Riding Hood.   

From session feedback we even ran a mini-series on how to translate ideas and concepts by setting effective SMART and FAST objectives.

Conferma Pay Head of HR, Sarah Burton said “The Leadership Academy was a great opportunity for our managers to work with and learn from their counterparts across the organisation.

Both sessions certainly generated some creative thinking and interesting ideas. Our managers are already looking forward to taking part in future academy sessions.”
