Launching Actus Academy: The new on-demand learning platform for remote people managers

Part of our ethos is to help build a better workplace for people, and in light of Covid-19, we’ve worked hard to help address remote working challenges for businesses. Following popular demand for more virtual learning opportunities, we are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new, on-demand learning platform for remote people managers, Actus Academy.

Learning platform for remote managers

Specifically designed to support remote people managers, Actus Academy provides a library of e-learning and interactive video content. It also offers a host of other management resources in the form of infographics, templates and white papers. Therefore, managers empowered with access to this variety of learning resources can develop and learn new skills around their busy schedule, ensuring the transition to virtual management is more streamlined and malleable.

One advantage is that there is no long-term tie-in, you simply sign up for only £99pp to gain unlimited access for six months. Certainly, this is enough time to embed the learning with no automatic rollover unless you choose to renew.

Remote Learning Suite

Additionally, Actus Academy is only one part of a wider Actus Remote Learning suite. Also available are three key virtual training programmes that are being offered to accelerate employee engagement and performance against the backdrop of another lockdown. These virtual training programmes are facilitated by experienced trainers, such as our very own CEO and chartered psychologist, Lucinda Carney.

The three virtual training programmes are available both as an open programme or in-house. Here is a brief overview:

  • Virtual People Management:
    It’s well-known that managers often lack the training to effectively manage their people, let alone in a remote environment. Therefore, this course covers key aspects for virtual people management such as trust, wellbeing and managing underperformance.
  • Accelerate Potential:
    Pre-Covid, new employees would learn on-the-job, or through interacting with their more established colleagues. Certainly, it is much harder to acquire these naturally learned skills remotely. This course provides entry-level employees with an essential set of tools to help broaden their awareness and fill in the skills gaps that may be missing due to hybrid working.
  • How to be a Change Superhero:
    Based on our CEO, Lucinda Carney’s best-selling book, this course provides the knowledge, tools and confidence to feel like a Change Superhero! The purpose is to help us all to ‘do change better’ by building the practical skills to deliver change successfully.

The Actus Remote Learning suite provides a virtual set of management tools that ensure managers have the skills and confidence to get the best out of their teams, whatever the location.
