#Employee Learning & Development
We provide a range of opportunities to support our people’s current and future needs, and provide extensive training to elevate them professionally and personally. Our internal training has been designed to ensure everyone receives the right balance of professional, technical and on-the-job learning.
Our Online Learning Space provides access to a broad range of tools, resources, programs and support, including compliance training, marketplace learning, Moody’s Analytics training, leadership courses, essential business skills training, study support, and other development. Our people are also encouraged to pursue external learning opportunities, and are given time off and financial support to attend training, workshops and courses.
Using interactive technology, we are fundamentally changing the way we learn, problem solve and develop our capabilities. Suncorp has implemented a new social learning platform, Cognita, that will change how our workforce learns, adapts and grows. It is a significant investment in our people and their capabilities, and it recognises the power of the individual to take control of their learning and their career.
#Building a Future Ready Workforce
Technology, social and demographic changes are driving a rapid shift in the way we work, with the jobs of the future becoming more flexible, agile and connected. Suncorp’s Future Ready program supports our people through this changing environment and helps them manage their career, wellbeing and financial security.
Future Ready has identified the capabilities we need to deliver our business strategy, while developing our people and retaining talent. The program focuses on five emerging capabilities: digital and data-driven insights; marketplace mindset; robotics and automation; rapidly enacting partnerships; and exploring and pursuing disruption.
In February 2019 a pilot group of 27 Suncorp people graduated from the Future Ready Academy. The pilot helped them to develop a range of new skills and build expertise in analytics, digital and data. In April 2019, we launched My Future Career workshops to help our people develop a career plan that contributes to job satisfaction and helps navigate a rapidly changing workplace.
