The on-demand learning platform for remote people managers

We are proud to offer the brand-new Actus Academy learning platform to support remote people managers who have found their role has changed beyond all recognition. Our recent survey showed that 93% of respondents felt that remote management is slightly or completely different from face-to-face management and, unsurprisingly none of them had received specific training to deal with this new challenge. With further lockdowns in sight for the foreseeable future, it has never been more important to ensure that every remote manager feels confident and competent to get the best from their team.

Actus Academy is an on-demand learning platform with e-learning and interactive video content that is highly relevant to remote people management. It also offers a host of other management resources in the form of videos, recorded webinars, infographics, templates and white papers.

The beauty is that there is no long-term tie-in, you simply sign up to the Actus Academy to gain unlimited access to all the resources for 3 months. There is no subscription or automatic rollover unless you choose to renew for a further period to retain access.

All training is written by our experienced trainers and suitable for all managers. The platform offers the opportunity for relevant, on-demand learning that can fit around a busy work schedule.
