The on-demand learning platform for remote people managers

We are proud to offer the brand-new Actus Academy on-demand 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 in how to deal with this new challenge. With remote working a reality for the foreseeable future, it has never been more important to ensure that every manager has the skills and confidence to get the best out of their team.

Actus Academy is an on-demand learning platform with a library of 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 interactive videos, 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 six months – more than enough time to access and embed the learning without being tied to a rolling subscription. You simply sign up and gain immediate, unlimited access for six months with no automatic rollover unless you choose to renew for a further period to retain access.

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

Content includes:

  • E-learning modules on a range of remote management topics including setting objectives, delivering feedback and managing underperformance
  • Interactive video learning modules on topics that include: wellbeing, homeworking and preparing for a remote appraisal
  • A host of infographics, white papers and downloadable templates
