Fostering a strong learning culture with Persolkelly Consulting


For years, people-oriented companies have spent money for training, but the contribution to business results often remains a mystery. At PersoKelly Consulting, we believe company training is futile unless it is internalised by the participant, and translated into self-reflection and subsequent behavioural changes that improve work passion and effectiveness.

We designed our learning services at PersoKelly Consulting under one roof, namely The Learning Academy. At The Learning Academy, we focus not only on delivering content that engages, but also on fostering a learning culture and empowering our participants to use what they have learned to impact the way they act and behave. Positive changes in behaviour are contagious. When a big enough clout in an organisation exhibits desired behaviour consistently, we will see what we call “company culture”, resulting in stronger employee engagement and soaring business growth.

At the Vendors of the Year awards 2018, PersoKelly Consulting was awarded a silver for Best Leadership Development with the service highlights as follows:

1. Customised learning programmes that can be adapted effectively to embrace cultural differences We tailor learning programmes as an integral part of our solutions to tackle specific organisation or team issues, and we follow up until the issues are addressed. Historically rooted in Japanese beliefs and culture, PersoKelly Consulting is sensitive to cultural differences and detail in the customer experience. With a presence in 13 APAC countries, we design region-wide courses that address corporate needs, while adapting the content flexibly and effectively to maximise its effectiveness under different local cultures and languages.

2. Leadership and executive development programmes that ignite your leaders’ minds Our certified programmes with partners offer programme resources from stellar educational institutions. Using case studies from Harvard Business School’s methodology, delivered by remarkably proficient trainers, we fuse the Harvard Socratic approach with our trainers’ practical expertise. The course provides insightful learning experiences and invigorating case study discussions that kindle self-reflection of leaders and ignite their minds.

3. Open learning courses that provide company staff autonomy to register for courses of their own interests We believe learning is more effective if the ownership of learning rests with the learner himself. To support our clients in nurturing a learning culture, we conceived the concept of a “learning cafeteria” – where our client’s staff are given the autonomy to register for courses of their own interests with the PersoKelly Consulting Learning Academy vouchers. The courses cater to the needs of staff at their different stages of leadership development – from honing their soft skills to improving self-awareness and other competencies.

As a progressive HR consulting firm, PersoKelly Consulting will relentlessly upgrade itself and will be introducing state-of-the-art services such as a learning management system that fuses technology with on-site facilitation.

PersoKelly Consulting is a sister brand of Kelly Services Hong Kong, a global workforce solutions company, and also a three-peat winner of the 2018 VOTY Best Contract Staffing Solution gold award.
